.NET Compact Framework -- how to get method name?

Situation: When catching errors in a C# .NET Compact Framework, I log the name of the method and what error occured into a SQLCE table for review.  As of now I have to manually enter the name of the method into a string to be saved into the table for later analysis.

So the question is: Using C# and the .NET Compact Framework -- how does one programatically retrieve the current method name?  I know this is possible in regular windows form development within .NET -- but is it even possible in the Compact Framework?

The current method name during execution could be found by

StackTrace stk = new StackTrace();
StackFrame stf = stk.GetFrame(0);    
string methodName = stf.GetMethod().Name;


Unfortunately, the Compact Framework doesn't expose the StackTrace class so it looks like this won't be possible for WINCE.NET

One of the best resources for .Net compact framework is at www.opennetcf.org

I just searched their website and found nothing for StackTrace

Well -- was hoping the someone from MS or elsewhere would intercede and let us know a back way into the StackTrace -- but alas it is not to be.  Thanks tons for the knowledge that it isn't possible in the current framework -- keeps me from searching endlessly...
