Related semantic question: assume the above works.  What should
myList.Get(0).GetType().FullName return?

We're now entering the realm of "funny corner cases," so which is the clearer
set of semantics?


    var list = new LinkedList<object>();
    Logger.Log(LogLevel.Info, "testing", list.Get(0).GetType().FullName);

One of two things can be printed from the above.

Option 1 is for System.Boolean to be printed.  The implication though is that
this will fail:

    var list = new LinkedList<object>();
    list.Add(new Java.Lang.Boolean (true));
    Assert.AreEqual ("Java.Lang.Boolean", list.Get(0).GetType().FullName);

Option 2 is for Java.Lang.Boolean to be printed.

The problem is that we're dealing with an intermediary that can't tell what you
originally stuffed in the list, as it's separated by a wrapper type.

To avoid this whole mess, you could just use LinkedList<bool>, which will allow
adding and getting System.Boolean instances...
