I'd guess they share some internals -- why write the same thunking code
twice, after all.  But their usage patterns are sufficiently different that
I'd argue the internals don't really matter.  P/Invoke requires you to
declare everything explicitly, while the goal for MC++ is to make interop as
transparent as possible.
