Is it possible to call classmethod of a current class from method generator?

Here's my code (download):

Class Utils.Generators [ Abstract ]

ClassMethod B()
    s ^a = 1

ClassMethod A() [ CodeMode = objectgenerator, GenerateAfter = B, PlaceAfter = B ]
    k ^a
    do ..B()

Now, obviously for it to work I need method B compiled and ready to use before compiling method A().

I test it with the following code:

do $system.OBJ.UnCompile("Utils.Generator")
do $system.OBJ.Compile("Utils.Generator")

Yet, I receive the following compilation error:

Compilation started on 04/10/2016 18:39:04 with qualifiers ''
Compiling class Utils.Generator
ERROR #5002: Cache error: <CLASS DOES NOT EXIST>A+2^Utils.Generator.G1 *Utils.Generator
  > ERROR #5490: Error running generator for method 'A:Utils.Generator'
ERROR: Utils.Generator.cls(A) of generated code
    > ERROR #5030: An error occurred while compiling class 'Utils.Generator'
Compiling routine Utils.Generator.1
Detected 1 errors during compilation in 0.006s.

Any way I can solve it (besides moving B method into another class and specifying CompileAfter and DependsOn  class keywords)?

This is not possible, as you suggest you should put the methods you wish to call at generator time in another class and make sure you create a dependency with this other class using the 'DependsOn' keyword to make sure we fully compile this other class first.
