 To ensure full compatibility with .NET, all Mono system assemblies should 
 be strongly named.
 Right now, none of the Mono system assemblies are strongly named.
 Is there are special reason for this ?
+------- Additional Comments From sebastien@ximian.com  2004-03-15 08:48 -------
+The issue is a little complex. There is already some support for it,
+e.g. right now we can strong name assemblies. However to be useful we
+- finish the GAC support;
+- special code to support the ECMA key (for most assemblies);
+- special code to support the Microsoft key (for some assemblies);
+- strong name validation to the runtime (when loading assemblies
+outside the GAC).
+- and some other issues (like managing the keys ;-)
+All those items are being worked on.
