Rewrite WinSCP using COM (via .NET assembly)

WinSCP doesn't work on 64-bit Salamander, but you still sell it (?)
Why not to rewrite the plugin using COM?

Thanks.

Martin Přikryl, the author of Winscp has stated that the main reason why the plugin is not migrated is unicode. The Winscp base is now unicode and it would be rather hard to migrated from non-unicode environment. He probably wanted to wait till AS is unicode before migrating it to x64 and the newest Winscp.
