ProxyTypeBuilder does not honour implemented interfaces


The ProxyTypeBuilder class will not honour any existing interface implementations on a subject type. For example, if type SubjectType implements ICollection<int>, the generated interface ISubjectType and proxy type SubjectTypeProxy will not implement ICollection<int>. As a result, it is no longer possible to pass an instance of ISubjectType to a function that accepts ICollection<int>, where as it would have been possible by passing SubjectType directly.
This functionality should be preserved.

I believe the InterfaceMap type will help solve this problem.

Currently I am tinkering with an use cases and trying to avoid ordering issues like adding methods to a ProxyTypeBuilder, then specifying that the proxy type implements an interface -- in this case, I may have to revist all added methods and map them correctly.

Moving to inactive state. Unfortunately, I have not been able to spend as much time as I would have liked addressing this. However I do know that introducing InterfaceMap support requires a major refactoring of the existing implementation.
