If they have, then I can't find it (it isn't in the current version of the 
ECMA specification).  Pointers are welcome if you have them.

The Gyro code contains some samples that demonstrate building generic 
collection classes, but they have about three different styles of 
collections, all incompatible.  None of them are part of the standard class 
library that comes with Gyro - the class library is fully non-generic.

I will ping my meagre ECMA contacts to see what the status is, but I suspect 
it is "not any time soon".

We still need something to use ourselves anyway - it won't be a big burden for 
us to ship "Generics.dll" or whatever with our own applications if MS chooses 
a different path.  We should be able to quickly adapt to a new style anyway.
