+Summary: mcs prefers a varargs method instead of a prarams one
+Console.WriteLine is overloaded: two of the methods look like:
+WriteLine (string, params object[]);
+WriteLine (string, object, object, object, object, ...);
+The documentation says that the last one cannot be used in C# code.
+Still, mcs run on the ms runtime uses it for the sample below:
+using System;
+class T {
+        static void print (string msg) {
+                Console.WriteLine ("{0} {1} {2} {3}", msg, msg, msg, msg);
+        }
+        static void Main() { print ("a");}
+The sample will still run on the ms runtime, though not on the mono one
+since we don't support the vararg call convention yet (and neither mcs
+supports it for that matter).
