[Ironruby-core] IsRubyMethod

I guess this could be one way to do it

class Class

  def ruby_method?(name)
      self.class.clr_member name.to_sym
      return false
      return true

or something along those lines. I have a thing against relying on exceptions
for these kinds of methods but that will work.
Exceptions are meant for exceptional cases and this isn't an exceptional
case :)

You could also check if the type is a clr type and if it is enumerate the
clr methods with reflection something like this

class String

  # converts a camel cased word to an underscored word
  def underscore
    self.gsub(/::/, '/').
        tr("-", "_").


if ctype = MyClass.to_clr_type
   members = ctype.get_methods + ctype.get_properties
   !members.collect { |mem| mem.to_s.underscore }.include? :my_method
   return true
