Split up DECL_EXTERNAL and METHOD_NATIVE. It seems awful strange/wrong to
have them overloaded on the same bit. Can someone from the Java side
explain why they're using the same bit? Especially since DECL_EXTERNAL has
a well defined meaning already. It seems to me using a lang specific flag
would make a lot more sense for METHOD_NATIVE.
