The problem, iirc, is that we don't stack possible loaders for a plugin. 
  So, on windows, dll will get mapped to a native plugin and thus .net 
plugins will always fail to load because the mono loader's probe is 
never getting called.  This of course works on !win32 because we have 
different extensions for native plugins.
