Thank you very much Sebastien. Can you point me to those tests somehow ? I
am ready to contribute in every aspect - I mailed jb and never received a
reply, so your post explains why :) 

I searched the posts but found no luck.  I am trying to write an engine that
will make retrieving plain text code easier on top of CECIL, and since my
reflection provider is CECIL and the library itsself is a reflection,
although I was able to seperate some Concerns I wasn't successful in
Abstracting or Mocking out CECIL because of these concerns. 

Do you, or anybody know any sort of library or function that exists to make
my life easier ? Or do I need to write a translation engine on top of
existing CIL intructions within scopes ?

Thanks a lot.
