COM Signature

From vsshell.idl:

HRESULT IVsShell::GetProperty(
   [in] VSSPROPID propid,
   [out] VARIANT *pvar

Each __VSSPROPID must return a VARIANT structure that contains the proper VT_ type. The caller can assume the VT_ is correct; that is, it is not required to call VariantChangeType or verify the type (beyond an ASSERT to be sure there were not header-file mismatches). This logic also applies to the caller when setting a property; the hierarchy will assume the caller has passed a VARIANT already converted to the proper VT_ type.
