+There is one problem to compute the "correct"(*) public key token from
+the public key is that the hash algorithm is part of the
+AssemblyDefinition class (and not part of the AssemblyName). Otherwise
+Cecil could always use SHA-1 to generate the public key token.
+I think it would make more sense to have the hash algorithm inside the
+AssemblyName (like it is in the System.Reflection.AssemblyName).
+(*) I say "correct" because I've never seen MD5 used to compute a
+public key token - but it's still in the spec so...
