Don't forget the ones in VB that C# devs would kill for.  Like Distinct :)

I wouldn't expect support for the whole whack of operators - just the
ones that make sense using the syntax for generator expressions. Most
of the queries I do are just filtering a set, which genexps are
perfectly suited for, and it would be nice if using a genexp on an
entity framework set could be executed in the database instead of on
the client.

All that said, it would just be syntax sugar over the extension
methods in the same way that C#'s query expressions are.
