Get Return Type of WMI Class Method

I've looked all over MSDN and google and can't seem to find anything that really tells me how.  I'm trying to generate some code for WMI and retrieve some methods to put in some classes I'm building.  I can pull all the information about the methods except the return type of the method itself.  Can anyone shed some light on how to do this?

Here is the code I'm using.  Like I said, it allows me access to anything I need about the method except the return type of the method itself as far as I can tell.
MethodDataCollection methods = processClass.Methods;
 
            // display the method names
            //Console.WriteLine("Method Name: ");
            foreach (MethodData method in methods)
            {
                ClassMethod.QualifiersDescription = method.Qualifiers["Description"].Value.ToString();
 
                if (method.InParameters != null && (method.InParameters.Properties != null && method.InParameters.Properties.Count > 0))
                {
                    foreach (PropertyData i in method.InParameters.Properties)
                    {
                        ClassMethod.InParameters.Add(i.Name, i.Value, i.Type);
                    }
                }
 
                if (method.OutParameters != null && (method.OutParameters.Properties != null && method.OutParameters.Properties.Count > 0))
                {
                    foreach (PropertyData o in method.OutParameters.Properties)
                    {
                        ClassMethod.OutParameters.Add(o.Name, o.Value, o.Type);
                    }
                }
 
                if (method.Qualifiers != null && (method.Qualifiers != null && method.Qualifiers.Count > 0))
                {
                    foreach (QualifierData q in method.Qualifiers)
                    {
                        ClassMethod.Qualifiers.Add(q.Name, q.Value, q.IsAmended, q.PropagatesToInstance, q.PropagatesToSubclass, q.IsOverridable);
                    }
                }
                
                MethodList.Add(ClassMethod);
            }

Perhaps I'm confused... but the return type of every WMI method is UInt32

Is that documented somewhere graye?  Or am I just being an idiot (which the case could very well be) :)....?

I'm not sure I've seen it anywhere in print, but it certainly seems to be the case.
