Anyway...I was playing around with IronRuby earlier this evening trying to see how it handled generics...well, currently it doesn't (remember, the code is alpha...but pretty sweet!).  I created a sample C# class (cleverly) called, MyClass:using System; namespace CSharpClass { public class MyClass { // Currently this event type cannot be called from IronRuby. public EventHandler<CustomArgs> Custom; ...
