.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

Cheers,

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...
