At the risk of talking about something I have not researched into
detail yet, but have thought about, I will have to look in this in more
We are talking about attributes at the run time ,based on the IL?

I was thinking about this in the context of porting the pnet runtime to
the gcc. My idea was to embed a good chunk of the runtime as a lib
inside of the target program, or as a lib. This would also include the
attribute handling.

Well, I would start by porting a implementation of the c# attributes to
java. Creating an set of classes to represent them in memory. And then
making some way to instanciate them at start up and run time. 

I would have to look into this in detail. Do you know of any
difficulties that might occur? How important is this for you?
Would you like a more detailed analysis, is it of relevance to the
mission of mono?

please feel to ban me from the list for off topic discussion, for
distraction, for  wasting you bytes and time, or for absolutly no
reason at all :)
