 We currently have this "I don't know whether I'm a ref or an out parameter" hack everywhere because our runtime doesn't provide this 
 info.  So if I fix MCS for the ms runtime and for dynamic it won't work anymore with our runtime since it won't accept an "I don't 
 know whether I'm ref or out" parameter anymore.

+martin, what does it mean: "we do not distinguish between ref and out
+parameters in MCS since there was no way to get this info from
+reflection"? Is there a bug in the mono runtime? what bug number is it?
+You should fix mcs to work with the ms runtime, that has always been
+the reference platform. If the code doesn't work with the mono
+runtime, then file a bug (unless, of course, the code happens to work
+on the ms runtime, but it shouldn't).
