Thanks for the info.  However, I want to do this within the mono C code
(I'm a Master's student trying to hack mono for research) -- not from C#.
While I am compiling a method (in mini_method_compile, for example), I'd
like to check the method attributes by referencing its metadata directly.
Is there any easy way to do this in mono?  Or do I have to read the CLI
specs and then use the functions in metadata.c in an appropriate manner?
