I was wondering if there's any objections to implementing fixed buffers and stack allocation, along with a basic pointer structure to the VB language? Many VB developers and myself create various workarounds to encapsulate most of those features, usually with the Marshal methods and IL, yet I feel that native language support for those elements could truly solidify the main .NET language family. Any thoughts on this?
