Re: List<T> constructor taking IEnumerable<T> behaves surprisingly

You could bypass the List<T>'s tendency to use ICollection<Tby
simply not giving it an ICollection<T- for example, with the C# 3
extension method below you could use:

List<Tlist = new List<T>(source.AsEnumerableOnly());

The AsEnumerableOnly() *only* exposes IEnumerable<T(OK, it also
exposes IEnumerable and IDisposable ;-p), allowing your non-Count-
friendly implementation to work happily.


public static class EnumerableExt
public static IEnumerable<TAsEnumerableOnly<T>(
this IEnumerable<Tsource)
if (source == null) yield break; // GIGO
foreach (T item in source)
yield return item;
