Custom events in VB.Net

I had a discussion going on with some folks regarding the fact that VB.Net does not have the equivalent of C# event accessors (the "add" and "remove" accessors you can declare inside an event declaration).

We thought this wasn't possible until Paul Vick blogged about the "Custom Event" declaration that will be available with VB.Net 2.0. That's really good news. Now you can handle various problems such as non-serializaed events in a safer manner, or use the EventHandlerList class to manage many events in your class. Very Nice.
