VB gets a Using keyword - excellent

So our VB bretheren finally get a Using keyword for the language.  Kudos to the VB team for implementing it 5 years after C#... 

On the flip side, I hope we never see a With keyword in C# ;-)

I'm just glad that the VB guys can now get proper Disposal symantecs with their language.

I would love to see a with block. I personally think it'd be pretty useful and could even better performance in some situations... assuming it was implemented correctly.

Yeah but where's that "Handles" keyword in C#?
