 It is possible, by using AssemblyBuilder, to create assemblies
 contaning AssemblyKeyFileAttribute even when the specified file
 doesn't exists. 
 CSC reports the CS1548 error in this case.
 MCS currently generates the assembly (as it rely only on AssemblyBuilder).

+After further tests it appears that attributes do not control the
+signing process (as currently implemented). It is possible to have
+attributes without signatures and signatures without attributes.
+This means we cannot strongname assemblies without modifying mcs (like
+the current approach) but this should solve
+(a) reporting CS1548 when key file is not found;
+(b) the new /keyfile, /keycontainer, /delaysign parameters in 1.2;
+without requiring mcs to link with Mono.Security.dll.
+Suddenly it all make sense ;-)
