Support for the "implements" keyword indeed is quite buggy, because it  
was never finished (there are also several failing tests for it in the  

I was only talking about the interfaces themselves (declaring them,

declaring variables and parameters that are interface types, assigning  
class instances to interfaces, calling interface methods via class  
instance and interface variables).
