Ultimately it would be nice if we weren't generating
all the code and that this would work with any CIL
from anywhere. Having said that, bytecode translation
is currently part of the plan, so it could go in

Paolo was talking about DynamicMethod Lightweight Code
Generation stuff as a potential solution to this
problem, which I'm planing to look in to.

At a pinch, this would do.
