It also would be arguably a direct derived work of MS code, and hence a 
Copyright violation.  Yes, it is annoying to write it all by hand, but it is 
more defensible, even if the result ends up being the same.

I've also found that writing classes by hand actually helps me understand how 
they are put together, which then makes it easier to write the implementation 
afterwards.  You won't get this insight if you auto-stub.

Please everyone, don't cut corners on this.
