And certainly with C#, it feels like much of what gets added are
isolationist features, not infrastructure. And when they do build
infrastruture, there are holes. (Try to write the downcast you need
in "void Foo<T>(T x) where T : IFoo;" so that you can pass x to "void
Bar<U>(U x) where T : IFoo, IBar;", for example.)
