Not sure about this, but you can use TypeBuilder to hold your stub,
complete it as you know how it should be (adding methods), then use
MethodBuilder to add some code to the methods, then you can create an
instance of the type using:

Activator.CreateInstance (typeBuilder.CreateType (), null);

I repeat, not sure about this.
