Yeah I understand. Although a large portion of System.Reflection is to do with statically available info (obviously I don't expect roslyn to be able to give me runtime values if there isn't a program running, so there's no representation of CreateInstance, SetValue, GetValue etc.).
For example PropertyInfo in reflection, and IPropertySymbol in Roslyn
This is the stuff I want to hear about :D. I just want to know if these kinds of relationships are documented somewhere - and is it a value that the roslyn team hold or is any symmetry between the APIs incidental?
IsNullableTypeOrTypeParameter (https://sourceroslyn.io/#Microsoft.CodeAnalysis.CSharp/Symbols/TypeSymbolExtensions.cs,113) checks if a constraint type is a nullable type.
But how is this ever possible since structs can't be constraints? Is it only if the constraint is defined in a different language?
lowera code block to a classic simple C#/VB code and show it in a readoly code window. Pattern matching expressions are in top of things that may need
explanation. I may go far and say every new concept since Roslyn can be considered hard and nee to be explained. This can be a useful educational feature, and ease the pain for new team members that joins a large project. VS offers to simplify expressions which in most cases means shorten them into a complex modern syntax! We may need an action on the opposite direction. This seems a lot of work, but it can make use of the Roslyn code itself if it lowers these statements.
