Currently PowerShell has it's own system (based on type.ps1xml files) for creating extension methods -- while this would have been admirable in the .Net 1.1 or 2.0 era, in the modern .Net Framework we already have Extension methods, and they do not work in PowerShell.
As more and more of the .Net Framework itself and 3rd Party APIs begins to depend on extension methods to create "fluent" programming interfaces, it is critical that PowerShell support pre-compiled .Net extension methods.
