The default return type of untyped member vars and properties is "dynamic". And everything works because Cobra has excellent support for this.

But Cobra targets .NET 2.0 where no such concept of "dynamic" exists. Cobra's "dynamic" degrades to the closest available concept which is "object". Certainly for .NET 4.0, Cobra should use the "dynamic" type, but it's not clear that's what you meant for this ticket.

I will likely close this as wontfix and we can add a new ticket for the use of "dynamic" when on .NET 4.0.
