[IronPython] howto access interface method?

It's an interesting idea, but I think it'll end up conflicting w/ generics. What happens if I have a class that explicitly implements an interface that has BeginInit on it and defines a BeginInit<T> method? We won't know which one we should bind to.
My current thoughts on this are self.DataGridView1.ISupperInitialize_BeginInit. It's more verbose then I'd like it, but it also avoids versioning problems (where someone could add "BeginInit" in a later version and suddently you're calling something different).

Would it be reasonable to use syntax
to do the equivalent of "casting to an interface" in IP?
