 compild with "mcs -o t9 t9b.cs t9a.cs" (note switched order of files), I get:
 t9b.cs(5) error CS0117: `T.X.Z' does not contain a definition for `BLAH_LIB'
 csc behaves as expected.  Blocking future commit of gtk#-for-win32 patch,
 as it can't compile under linux without a hack :)

+I think that a quick hack would be to get constants defined before
+attributes are emitted (currently attributes are processed before
+everything else).
+But I am starting to believe that this is the wrong approach.  I might
+want to go a different path which is to have every type trigger
+recursive definitions.  The changes are rather significant, so I want
+to think about this for a while.
