Mixing MFC doc/view modules with .NET WinForms components

What is the general strategy for mixing MFC doc/view modules with .NET Winforms components? How can I launch an MFC doc/view module from a .NET GUI app (subclassing or substitute frame)?
The general strategy is to not mix them. While I guess you could possibly hack and slash enough to get an MFC library to display inside a Windows Form, the effort would huge and a waste of time. My advice would be to rewrite from scratch if you're going the Windows Form route.
