 naming its SpecialName methods "get_". In fact, this is exactly what
 IKVM.NET does: it generates accessors for static variables, so
 System.out becomes java.lang.System.get_out().
 I think the correct fix is to check whenever the method is an operator
 or a property accessor.

+This could potentially be very hard to fix efficiently.
+Here is the problem: effectively, any mehtod can be a property method.
+ When we find one of these methods, we will have to extract all the
+property/event definitions and see if the method is referenced from there.
+The good news is that SpecialName methods occur rather infrequently.
