+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: AssemblyBuilder.cs doesn't process AssemblyKeyNameAttribute 
+Description of Problem:
+Method SetCustomAttribute 
+in /mcs/class/System.Reflection.Emit/AssemblyBuilder.cs doesn't seem to 
+process AssemblyKeyNameAttribute to include a strongname public key into 
+an assembly (but AssemblyKeyFileAttribute is supported).
+Most public projects uses AssemblyKeyFileAttribute because it's easier to 
+distribute a SNK file than export a CryptoAPI container - but enterprises 
+may use the containers for better security (like having the key into a 
+smartcard). Right now Mono support for CAPI containers is rather limited -
+ so this isn't an immediate problem.
