+Version: 1.1
+OS: other

+Summary: Method to delegate conversion wrong for interface types
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what you are doing.
+Description of Problem:
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. See attched code - compile it.
+2. A method (group) can be implicitly converted to a delegate provided it is consistent (22.1)
+3. Consistency allows implicit reference conversions, so in this case for FC(M) to work there
+    must be such a conversion from C to I - there is. Mono barfs (MS does not).
+Actual Results:
+Expected Results:
+No barf.
+How often does this happen? 
+All the time.
+Additional Information:
+I *prefer* when you reject invalid long/int conversions early enough in this scenario so the 
+example at the end of works under Mono but not MS - the Standard seems to be 
+wrong here. But sadly in this case you're the one to err - win some lose some...
