[Mono-dev] Can we use Cecil to do the MS.VB.dll fixup currently done with 3 cumbersome steps?

JB Evain blogged about the Armand du Plessis, article


That just describes a way with a short program using Cecil to do the
optional parameters fixup.

I see 2 advantages:

1 - It's simpler and more manageable
2 - probably it won't break debug symbols versioning as currently
occurs with the disassemble-perl-reassemble cycle we currently use.

The only small problem I foresse is to guarantee (by ordering better
the things) that Mono.Cecil and the little utility are available
before trying the ms.vb.dll compilation and fixup.

Thanks a lot JB,

As I'm currently working a lot with Java and even fixing Java VMs
(JamVM/Kaffe) and GNU Classpath code, I think I may partly borrow the
title (Javaman) from my friend Bruno Souza and become the
MonoNJavaMan. Yeah, I may currently be crazier than usual...
