Hmm... this would make more sense . But this would mean every compiler
dev has to build it himself :-)

I think I fixed it with a couple of lines and no ILGenInfo option :-)

And if I forgot to mention , Dinosaurs d=Dinosaurs.Rex + Dinosaurs.Stegy 
also fails to compile for pnet ... (but since 99% of all enum operations are
either '|' or '&' , this is a rare case ;-)

Going on to fix that ... (and an initializer overflow bug , like 
Int32.MaxValue+1 for an int32 enum initializer compiles as of now).

The difference between insanity and genius is measured by success
