Is there any standard way of creating c# like attributes for ruby?

eg in c#

[RequireTransaction]
public void MyMethod()
...

which can later be examined via reflection and see what attribs are 
available on each method.

if there is no standard way, would it be ok to make it like this?

meta :some_method => "BizMethod"
meta :some_method => "WritesData"
meta :some_method => "RequireTrans"
def some_method()
  ....
end

by making "meta" a method of Class , wich takes a value key pair
which can later be fetched by another Class method which takes a symbol 
like :some_method

eg

attributes = MyType.get_attributes :some_method

or

res = MyType.has_attribute :some_method,"RequireTrans"


Im still too new to Ruby so I feel like mc guyver trying to invent 
things and have no clue if they are ok or just stupid :-P
