Modify block definition

I'm trying to modify Block definitions in dwg files from an out-of-process app.

    It has to work for ACAD 2004.
    Using C# and Interop..

I can add entities to the block definition but only when I know the entity type in advance (e.g. block.AddLine() etc.).

What I mean is I need to copy entities from a source (e.g. another drawing) and add them to the block definition, without checking the entity type.
I notice there is no generic AcadBlock.Add() or AddObject() or AddEntity().
Would it be possible to do it at all?
