The utility of a Dynamic type is high. The utility of values of Dynamic 
type is not high, in my view. Coin's support for 292 is limited, and 
does not include general manipulation of non-Java objects in the Java 
language. I respect that you believe the time has come for general 
manipulation of non-C# objects in the C# language.
