Dennis and Jambu,

Nice to hear from you both...

Specifically about

It may be easier to track the MANDATORY
Microsoft.VisualBasic.CompilerServices.StandardModuleAttribute that
all .NET classes that are to be understood as a vb module by
vbc/mbas/bmcs must sport.

It is easy to look at them like in this snippet from Strings.cs:

using Microsoft.VisualBasic.CompilerServices;
namespace Microsoft.VisualBasic
        public class Strings

Thanks for the hard work guys,
