your patch looks good, but unfortunately I already implemented this
myself last week.  There was a bug report open in bugzilla for a very
long time and since nobody volunteered to do it, I finally implemented
it myself.

I saw that you also implemented it for non-fundamental types like
TimeSpan and Version.  At the moment, I'm not sure whether this'll be
added to the standard or not (I asked and am waiting for a reply) - if
it will be added, not all your work was in vain :-)
