Right. Probably it is not primary concern for mono team, but there is still 
possiblilty that MS won't fix all those issues till VS 2005 release. So it is 
always a good idea to communicate to them what we expect to work.

I'm not suggesting that mono team (especially Martin) should devote any time 
for this. The bug I mentioned is so far an effective blocker for using S.R.E 
to compile generics, so currently there is no much need for futher 
investigations. After this gets fixed, I will try to proceed with my 

What I suggest is maybe spending some time for discussing missing APIs in 
generics (another one I opened: 
and report them to MS, which is the "owner" of those APIs.
For example why is that 'Mono_GetGenericFieldDefinition' needed by gmcs?
