 Note: csc reports no warning for this but when you compile with /o+ no
 code is emitted for ctor.
+------- Additional Comments From miguel at ximian.com  2006-03-22 11:35 -------
+Am just not sure that the right thing here is to produce more warnings
+than csc produces.
+There are a number of issues here:
+1. With the default warning level, we do get this error, and it
+happens quite often in our class libraries.   
+2. What is the real reason for CSC not to warn?  Is there a common
+pattern/usage of these variables that will lead to this?
+My guess for (2) is that its possible that auto-generated code (say,
+Winforms) might assign more variables than are actually used in a
+winforms application.
+The extra warnings that we will report will likely hide real
+problematic warnings in my opinion.
