Have you looked at ms-help://MS.VSCC/MS.MSDNVS/vblr7/html/vafctVal.htm ?

(If you don't have the VSCC installed, that is /Visual Basic and

Somewhere on the Mono site there is a recommendation about not 
decompiling/resourcing a class when reimplementing it for Mono, so one
(and rightly so, IMO) supposed to start from scratch, having only the
API and 
the .NET SDK as a reference. 

Fine. The problem is that Microsoft.VisualBasic, apart from obvious
like Date(), Val(), Str(), etc. is completely undocumented (especially 
CompilerServices). While it is still easy to understand what methods
IntegerType.FromString (String) do, how is one supposed to legally gain
a bit 
of knowledge about, e.g. the meaning and usage of methods like 
LateBinding.lateIndexGet(), etc? We are at a point where these function
starting to be badly needed to improve mBas, so I guess we should try to
a solution.

Any suggestion, as usual, is welcome
