 Marshal.SizeOf should return the size of the structure when marshalled
 to native code. Since the object/interface members cannot be marshalled
 to native code, the 0 size seems ok.

+Well, there is the consistency with .Net issue. But more than that a
+user can marshal object (as a VARIANT or interface pointer) and
+interface types to unmanaged code for COM Interop. I just verified
+this with .Net. I'm working on a patch to support this.
