+Ok, I figured out why this fails.  
+Basically, there are two type lookup mechanisms: one that can be used
+inside a codegeneration block (Block.EmitTopBlock) which will just
+lookup types.
+And another which has to lookup types and resolve the tree as it goes.
+The delegate case falls in the later case, and is using the former.
+The problem is that I have the code duplicated for classes and
+interfaces, so I am going to factor all this code into DeclSpace and
+make Delegates a DeclSpace and have them all use the same lookup code.
+Sorry for this thinko
