I'm loath to break compatibility with Gyro at this stage, but there may still 
be something simple that we can do.  Perhaps a compromise?

       callvirt void class Stack<!V>::Push(!0)
       callvirt void class Stack<!T>::Push(!0)

i.e. names can be used where the scope is unambiguous.  In the case of method 
signatures, the numbers can be read as "parameter 0" of the immediately 
enclosing method invocation.  The user can quickly see that this is "V".
