+Summary: Assembly.GetManifestResourceStream() should return an UnmanagedMemoryStream
+MS.NET 2.0 returns all resource streams as instances of the public 
+UnmanagedMemoryStream class. MS.NET 1.x returns an internal class named 
+__UnmanagedMemoryStream that seems to be similar to UnmanagedMemoryStream 
+in functionality.
+Mono however returns either FileStream or and internal IntPtrStream.
+I think Mono should return UnmanagedMemoryStream like MS.NET does because 
+this improves compatibility. And I think profile 1.x should use the same 
+UnmanagedMemoryStream as an internal class.
+Note that this behavior is documented in the example code on
