	Great - but that seem pretty useless when you can't invoke the method
you want on the object without the prototype / method description being
available at runtime ;-) So yes, one can dynamically create a stub
object - but one can't actually invoke the methods on it without a
horribly pedestrian 'stubObject.Invoke (blah blah ...)' :-)
