[IronPython] What happened to InitializeModule() in IP 2.7?

It should still be there at least I still see it in the sources.  It's not defined for Silverlight builds (I'm not sure if that's a change or not).  One thing to be careful of is that 2.6 and 2.7 do have different .NET assembly versions so they will be treated as different types.  In other words you need to re-build a 2.6 pre-compiled app to work against 2.7.

Subject: [IronPython] What happened to InitializeModule() in IP 2.7?

I'm running the pyc.py IronPython compiler. In the GenerateExe method, there is a call to ....GetMethod("InitializeModule"). This method was available in IP 2.6 but seems to have disappeared in IP 2.7.

I used "GetMethods()" to confirm that in IP 2.6 we have:

Int32 InitializeModule(System.Reflection.Assembly, System.String, System.String[])

but if I run in IP 2.7, the method is non-existent. This causes the GenerateExe method to fail, and the stub .exe file is not created. Fortunately, the old stub module .exe still works with the new .dll created.

Anyone know if there is something else that will work, or if the method has been renamed, or...??????
