This feature is in the ECMA, your MS.NET compiler is too old to compile 
it properly, if you were to use the compiler from the whidbey beta stuff 
it would compile fine.

Duncan explained exactly how to write the code so that a C# 1.0 compiler 
will compile it perfectly fine.

This has nothing to do with dialects, and everything to do with evolving 
standards. The standard is changing, we change with it, c'est la vie.
