 If I am missing something or I'm simply wrong, then ignore me - I just
 saw this strange statement of yours...

+I'll toss my two cents in here as well, since I hit this bug writing tests for the generics code 
+(and may need it fixed for the future)
+  Array in 2005b2 does not implement any generic interfaces, this makes sense - to 
+support varying generic interfaces, it would need to be changed into a generic type.
+I imagine arrays are special-cased in their runtime so that the types remains the same 
+(child types of Array, inheriting array implementations of interfaces), but also have their 
+interface tables stuffed with an implementation of IList<T>, which includes 
+ICollection<T> and IEnumerable<T>.
+I could certainly author a quick C# ArrayList<T> if it helps resolve this bug, but cannot 
+imagine this could be used without some runtime changes.
