+Summary: TypeBuilder should consider type created even if runtime fails to load it
+To match MS, TypeBuilder.IsCreated should return true after invoking 
+TypeBuilder.CreateType even if the runtime failed to load the emitted 
+type. This effectively also means that you can no longer make any 
+modifications to the TypeBuilder (eg. adding members, ...).
+I'd be happy to supply a patch, if someone can confirm that this patch 
+will be accepted. Of course, that means it should not introduce 
+If I'm allow to make this change, then we should introduce an internal 
+IsLoaded property (or something like this) that we can use, where 
+necessary, to check whether the type has been created and successfully 
+loaded by the runtime.
+To reproduce:
+1. compile the attached source code using gmcs.
+2. run it
+Expected result:
+The following output is written to the console:
+* Failed to load type
+* Created: True
+* Unable to change after type has been created.
+Actual result:
+* Failed to load type
+* Created: False
+* Added event
