FYI, the CLS is the Common Language Specification, which isn't really
anything to so with C#. Rather, the CLS is a subset of the Common Type
System (CTS). The CTS is the set of rules for defining and using types,
and the CLS subsets these rules to make it easier to allow languages to

It's true that C# can produce CLS-compliant types (although it can also
produce types that are not CLS-compliant). However, from the context of
your email it looked like you were referring to the C# language
specification, not the CLS.
