+Summary: /reference argument parser fails if the ref string has a trailing semicolon
+We are adding mono support to the Ant build tool; now that your tools are
+adding support for the MS argument syntax this should be fairly easy.
+The first thing to break is that if you have a list of references on the
+command line with a trailing semi
+We get an error:
+error CS0006: Cannot find assembly `'
+I guess trailing semi support is an implicit part of the MS syntax, or
+maybe it is 'support for empty assemblies'.
+I wonder what /reference ;;; does...
+My recommended fix would be to skip empty references in reference lists, as
+this should automatically get the trailing semi, and be more robust all
+round. We will work around it in Ant soon enough, but worry about other
+tools and users.
