Reagrs,

Your solution is exactly correct, and you can give yourself some 
well-deserved congratulations for figuring it out. You can do 
arbitrarily complicated machinations with generics in .NET/Link 
already, but .NET/Link really needs some added syntax for making 
generics easier to use, as well as more documentation.

One complication for your NETCallGenericStaticMethod function is that 
the GetMethod call fails if the static method has overloads. You can 
work around this by calling GetMethods[] and then iterating through 
the list to find the one you want. I give an example of this, as well 
as some more generics-related techniques, in a notebook I wrote a 
little while ago called "Using LINQ from Mathematica." It is of 
interest to anyone working with generics in .NET/Link, not 
necessarily using LINQ. I have sent this to you separately, and I'd 
be happy to send it to anyone else who is interested. Its content is 
being incorporated into the .NET/Link documentation for future 
versions of Mathematica.
