Note to Hamlet, 5.2.134: "I would you did, sir"

Act 5, Scene 2, line 134
I would you did, sir: —Osric has been talking on and on about Laertes as though Hamlet had never heard of him before, so I believe that Hamlet's point is that he wishes that Osric would realize that he, Hamlet, is truly "not ignorant."
