           Summary: View.Tag, View.SetTag(), View.GetTag() don't support

I'm trying to set a Tag for a View, but it seems to be overly complicated.

For example, in Java this code works:
Button button;

But in MonoDroid it fails because:
1. There is no implementation of setTag(object) but only of setTag(int key,
Object tag)
2. It won't work even if I use a key: button.SetTag(0, "2"). The compiler
complains that "2" isn't a Java.Lang.Object but it actually is an object!
3. Compiler complains about button.Tag = "2" as well.

I'd like to use any type of C# object as a Tag (not only strings).

Sent as a follow-up to an email from Jonathan Pobst in
monodroid at lists.ximian.com

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Button button;
2. button.SetTag("2");
1. Button button;
2. button.Tag = "2";
1. Button button;
2. button.Tag = 100;
1. Button button;
2. MyClass myClass = new myClass();
3. button.Tag = myClass;
Actual Results:  
Just follow the steps above

Expected Results:  
Compiler error. Application doesn't compile.
