What this means is that you wont be able to compile `corlib' with mcs
using the Microsoft runtime, you will have to use the Mono runtime.
But I am not sure if our Mono runtime is ready for this.

+Ok, some more comments:
+1. It is possible to implement our own Convert.ChangeType, we just
+need to have nested table of ifs and manually call the IConvertible
+interface.ToSomething () method.
+2. The problem with calling the FieldBuilder with a type which is not
+one of our defined types is that it will end up "referencing" an
+external type instead of being an internal type (that is my guess
+We can try of course.
