CodePlex #3216, #3301, #3361 are not bugs, but they point to possible
improvements to the documentation.

#3216: Problem calling APIs with object Array Parameters
IronPython Tutorial should say something about how to create and
manipulate .NET arrays. Especially, it should mention
Array.CreateInstance and Array[Object] syntax, that Array can be
treated as a generic type in the section discussing generics. This is
not obvious at all.

#3301: Modules/time year calculation bug
Python's time functions don't need to return UNIX timestamps as long
as they are consistent. However, many CPython users would expect this,
so this could be documented in the differences doc, as well as the
rationale.

#3361: IronPython does not run PYTHONSTARTUP
The tutorial could have a section devoted to various console options
and environment variables. I *thought* ipy.exe -h is pretty obvious,
but it seems not. It could mention -X:ExceptionDetail for example,
which can help debugging a lot.
