FYI I am basically just getting to get some small
programs we have to compile & work so what
I work on depends on what fails.

I've added a simple version of TypeOf ... Is as
well today.

Two things I'm currently thinking about are:

- Handling this sort of method declaration: Sub Main(args As String())
(as opposed to Sub Main(args() As String))
- Performance of referencing DLLs - the current search
of all types in an Assembly for StandardModules makes just referencing
a big Assembly with no such modules in it slow to compile.
