        // workflow definitions using the same activity. In this case when CacheMetadata
        // is called in the second thru Nth usage, we will use the same cached function. If the operator overload method is not public and
        // any of the invocations of the workflow definitions are done without ReflectionPermission(MemberAccess), we would be opening up a security hole because
        // the user should not have the ability to invoke the non-public operator overload, but we would be allowing it because we cached the method during a
        // CacheMetadata episode when the permission was granted.
        // So, if the operator method is NOT public, we need to insert a Demand for ReflectionPermission.MemberAccess
        // into the function we are generating so that each usage will ensure that the permission is granted before calling
        // the operator method. If the operator method is public, we don't need the demand.
        // We don't need to check the public visibility of the declaring type because the user must have already constructed a generic activity
        // that is parameterized by the declaring type (i.e. new Add<Foo,Foo,Foo>).
