 that the types are incompatible (because it doesn't know yet that
 that's allowed) and reject this as invalid IL - ie. in the same way as
 if you'd try to pass an array to a function taking a string ?
 My first idea of fixing this was having the verifier somehow change
 the type of the array.

+Paolo, what do you think about doing this in NEWARR ?
+Everytime you create an array where all elements have the same type T,
+create an instance of some special generic class
+System.InternalArray<T> instead of just System.Array.
+This shouldn't require too many changes in the JIT, just in NEWARR.
