Some of it, at least, is already there: check
mcs/class/corlib/System.Reflection.Emit/DynamicMethod.cs. I'm not sure
what else is involved in LCG (all the examples i've found via google have
just been using DynamicMethod, but it's possible it involves some other
improved reflection capabilities in Whidbey, but i'm not all that
well-versed in reflection, so i wouldn't know), but there's probably
enough implemented to work with.
