It is not a requirement.  You can look at the various classes, and
think about their relationships.

If you look at the ILDASM code, you might taint yourself, and your
code.  I rather have you spend more time understanding the classes
than using the quick approach of disassembling proprietary code and
implementing someone else's abstractions.

Please, be really careful here.

Do not worry about this.  Begin with a few things, and if you can not
figure out something, post to the list, and get input from other
people.  It is not such a big deal.

Also, if we can not figure something out, we can always wait for .NET
to fully ship to implement those, and look at those bits in the

Lets play safe.  There is really no need to use ildasm on proprietary
code.  Use ildasm on your own code if you want
