Hi Martin,

It wasn't that much work so it's not a big deal if it doesn't get in.

I saw the bug, but it wasn't clear that you had done it yet.  I saw in
cvs that IComparable<T> was implemented for a lot of the basic types
but not all, so I thought somebody might have added them as they
needed them.

Also, I know things are still in transition, but its hard to tell what
is going on from the class status page because it seems like even
though a bunch of generics are implemented in cvs, all generics stuff
show up as unimplemented.
