Templates are obviously a feature of the C++ compiler. VC++ 8
(which will ship with the .NET Framework 2.0) does support
templates. VC 7.x do that to a very limited exent only (You can
have certain function templates with managed signatures).

No. I meant adding a .NET implementations of the operations
of filesystem.
E.g. implement find_first_file/next_file/close in terms of
System::IO::Directory::GetFiles() and not touching anything

This can be compiled to managed code only (as can the current
Windows implementation). I just don't think it does buy you
