State of ClassInfo, TypeInfo, Reflection ?
Nowadays I have to develop in M$ .NET environment.
Not to mention how and why I hate it...

But there are a lot of good (and unfinished) ideas in it, for example:
- remoting
- dynamic class loading
- reflection

I think the root of these possibilities is Reflection.

Reflection could make the D life a lot easier also...
(I have found Ben Hinkle's Dflection very interesting
but it is in alpha stage yet. ClassInfo and TypeInfo are
not documented at all.)

Could anyone (Walter) tell me what is the "official" state
of planning/implementation of this and related things?
