Hi Stuart,

Please do you know if there is a one-to-one correspondence between

They are pretty closely matched. Compiled generic types always exist at
least as open (generic) types, usually TypeContainer(s) but can at the same
time exist as InflatedTypeSpec too when accesses from within the type. For
example in the following sample enum parent container will be

class C<T>
public enum E
