Seems useful, although it does set my "derived work" light blinking a little.  
What you have specified is essentially a decompiler, which stops before 
decompiling the method bodies.

I usually prefer that people write the entire class themselves, including the 
boring bits.  Then there is no question that we wrote it ourselves, in our 
own words.  It may take a little longer, but it is easier to defend in court 
should it ever come to that.

In any case, we already have an auto-stubber of sorts that Gopal wrote: 
"csdoc2stub".  This takes an XML description of the module as input.  What is 
currently missing is a program to convert an IL binary into XML first, which 
is one of the things on my list for the next few days.

I'll let others comment further before deciding yes or no.
