Description Dan Abramov 2013-07-25 09:02:57 UTC
It's frustrating that Immediate window doesn't understand basic things like using `operator` casting.
For example, I can't cast `Uri` to `NSUrl` although I can in code (because there is an explicit casting defined).

Seems to work fine in git master (about to be 4.1.9)

var url = new Uri ("http://www.google.com");

Immediate Pad:

> (NSUrl) url
	AbsoluteString: "http://www.google.com/"
	AbsoluteUrl: {http://www.google.com/}
	BaseUrl: (null)
	ClassHandle (MonoTouch.Foundation.NSUrl): 0x14bf26c
