+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: FileNotFoundException if AssemblyName's version does not contain 4 parts
+Currently, AppDomain.Load (AssemblyName) and Assembly.Load (AssemblyName) 
+(and related methods) always throw a FileNotFoundException when a version 
+with less than 4 parts is specified in the AssemblyName.
+This is due to a issue in build_assembly_name (assembly.c).
+I'll attach a patch that fixes this issue, adds unit tests for it.
+For now, I just set the build and revision number to 0 if not specified 
+in the AssemblyName, but we should really be setting these values to -1. 
+That would allow us to check whether values have been specified for 
+build/revision later on.
+However, I think it's best to leave that change up to someone that can 
+better estimate the consequences of that change, and can make necessary 
+modifications in other functions to cope with this change.
