I do not want to save the new IL code to assembly, I want to save it to 
memory to change a running program - but I know how to do that.

The problem is that I need to somehow *get* the new IL code - do to that 
I need to use gmcs and System.Reflection.Emit.

That's why I have to use Mono's System.Reflection.Emit not Mircosoft's
