[IronPython] Disabling optimized methods

This isn't actually optimization but rather dynamic methods.  You can use the -X:StaticMethods which will force all methods into types.  But the consequence of this is if methods are getting dynamically defined (e.g. exex "def foo(): pass") then we'll leak memory because the methods can never be freed.  But it will make the typical CLR-style debugging possible.

Subject: [IronPython] Disabling optimized methods

Is there a way to disable method optimizations? I tried setting
ScriptDomainManager.Options.DebugCodeGeneration = true, but the
debugger still shows "Cannot evaluate expression because the code of
the current method is optimized." for a large number of methods. I set
the option before creating the engine, but maybe that's not enough?
