Getting attributes on classes would be a start - but for example with
Silverlight you would want to be able to mark methods as 'Scriptable'.
It sounds like Dino has some ideas on this though.
When I was thinking about auto generating static assemblies from Python
source it did occur to me that it would be possible to use simple
markers to enable attributes...
