Yes, but that's not what Ryan and others want to achieve.
As far as I understand, ArrayB.Fill should fill all the
lowest (non-managed) types like Integer, Char and Float.
Otherwise it would not be "filling" but "clearing" because
some memory allocation is lost.

So you would need multiple DefaultValues but I don't see how this can be done.
