When did CSC start generating so many '#'s and '@'?  Last time I checked
CSC output, it would generate output similar to:


Now, '#' is also a synonym for '.' (e.g. "ClassName.#ctor" for the
constructor name instead of "ClassName..ctor"), so this sort of makes
sense, but not entirely...

The '@' makes *no* sense at all, since '@' appended to a type name
usually means "pass by references" (ref or out parameter), so using it
as a stand-in for ',' is...confusing.
