[mono-vb] Handles Clause

You're right about the grammar, I just checked it and the official VB  
specification is wrong, so in addition to changing this it should be  
stated in the code that it does not correspond to the grammar because the  
grammar is wrong (I use 'LAMESPEC' and an explaination normally).

Your code seems fine as well, the only thing is that I have been trying to  
name the test classes like the file (this is due to a wish that one day I  
might want to try to compile all the vb code in a directory together, and  
it won't fail because I have many classes with the same name. The test  
will also self-describe itself better) - and if there are many classes in  
the same test file either create a containing namespace or prefix the  
class names with the name of the file.

Regarding getting through the resolve phase I think it's not fully  
implemented (you don't say which error you get), and you might want to  
look into the code for the Implements clause, which should be very similar.

Thanks again,
