Completion should be offering me types which derive from IEnumerable<string> in this example. The only option it gives me is: return new IEnumerable<string> ();  This is obviously invalid as you can't instantiate interfaces :)

ouch you found the thing that can't be done in a speed efficient manner atm :(

Now with the new type system and proper type inference I've no excuse not implementing that :/
