 because existing code should have not been miss-compiled to begin with.
 So the only issue is for freshly compiled code, and in that case we
 can probably tell them appart.

+It is a problem.  I do not want to distinguish between newly defined types and types coming from reflection everywhere where we're 
+using these modifiers.
+We currently have this "I don't know whether I'm a ref or an out parameter" hack everywhere because our runtime doesn't provide this 
+info.  So if I fix MCS for the ms runtime and for dynamic it won't work anymore with our runtime since it won't accept an "I don't 
+know whether I'm ref or out" parameter anymore.
