Umm actually thats a very dangerous assumption. If the implementation in
mono is wrong then every app in mono has the hole. We've seen this occur
historically in other 'safe' languages. Also if there are bugs in libraries
it uses they end up everywhere

g_list, g_string and friends already provide that interface set in C and
fairly efficiently. Most gnome C apps use them and GNOME has had almost no
buffer overrun problems. Lots of other problems but not those.

If you don't use the tools properly you don't get good results. Thats
nothing to do with mono
