More thoughts about MCS and GMCS

Martin got GMCS to work on Windows, with a small caveat — there’s no API to change the MethodAttributes of a MethodBuilder. I have a couple of observations:

  • the caveat isn’t really a big deal. You only need to set NewSlot when there is a new keyword used in the declaration. Otherwise, it’s useful but not necessary (See bug 74852 for the gory details)
  • these changes, coupled with my older changes should allow us to have more code similarity between MCS and GMCS. Specifically, I think we can put in a couple of stubs: DropGenericTypeArguments and DropGenericMethodArguments into MCS and eliminate a big part of the textual differences between MCS and GMCS in non-generics related code. We already started on this in doc.cs
