+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: CS0414 not reported for constant that is never used
+Currently neither (g)mcs nor csc report CS0414 (2.0) / CS0169 (1.x) when a 
+private constant is never used.
+To reproduce, compile the following code snippet:
+class Program
+	private const int A = 5;
+	static void Main ()
+	{
+	}
+Expected result:
+test.cs(3,14): warning CS0414: The private field 'Program.A' is assigned 
+but its value is never used
+test.cs(3,14): The private field 'Program.A' is never used
