[IronPython] .NET Attributes

I like this too...  It's interesting that while the syntax isn't exactly the same for giving both classes & functions attributes they are both getting that information in the same way.  I was previously worried about the differences between classes & functions but I think this brings it all together.

As pointed out already, decorators can't be used with classes as of
2.4. But __attributes__ can be attached to classes or functions.

I agree that decorators would be nice. Perhaps something like the
following in clr module?

def f(arg):
f.__attributes__ = [Foo(), Bar(1)]

equivalent to:

@attributes(Foo(), Bar(1))
def f(arg):


cool_attributes = attributes(Foo(), Bar(1))

def f(arg):

def g(arg):

is possible.

Just my 2c.
