Another idea... what about starting from http://github.com/ffi and replacing the C extension with C# code?
Not sure if it will work but it's at least worth looking at. Or perhaps you can also look at what JRuby is doing.

Subject: [Ironruby-core] Ruby FFI port

Alright, I have a hankering again to port Ruby FFI ;).

One question: should the port be written in pure Ruby, or should this be a C# library in the same vein as YAML (IronRuby.Libraries.Yaml)?  I was leaning towards the latter, where I would branch from IronLanguages/Main, adding a Libraries.FFI folder beside Libraries.Yaml.
