+Summary: Under-specification of String.IndexOf method
+In the Mono documentation at
+<http://www.go-mono.com/docs/index.aspx?link=T%3ASystem.String%2F*>, the
+String.IndexOf(char) method is specified as:
+    Returns the index of the first occurrence of a specified Unicode
+character in the current instance.
+This doesn't say what happens in the case when the character isn't found.
+Similarly the other overloads of IndexOf, LastIndexOf and so on need to
+have a documented behaviour when what you're looking for is not found.  It
+appears they return -1, but I can't see this documented anywhere.
