ok, that was just a left over debugging code. It basically is an
indication that the .NET runtime will fail a few lines below while
trying to apply the attribute.
This is not a problem for the Mono runtime.

I would like to distribute two sets until I can implement the branch
optimizations (details are on bugzilla).

Yes, that would be the best thing, as I can do the daily builds on Linux
at that point, and include them on the packages ;-)
