After some investigation this should be possible to implement with SRE. When
fixing this by doing string comparison in TypeManager::IsEqual (Type a, Type b)
we still end up we 2 different tokens for same type (it crashes .NET and it
creates invalid assembly with 2 references to same type on Mono).

What actually happen is that we have 2 types of same type. One is TypeBuilder
and (created) second one is Type (imported). They are same but Equals returns

The correct fix would be to redirect imported type to current type but that is
big change which probably has to wait for CECIL.

One indication is warning CS1683 which csc reports when change seconds.cs

first.dll: warning CS1683: Reference to type 'SecondNS.SecondClass' claims it
        defined in this assembly, but it is not defined in source or any added
second.cs(17,4): error CS0570: 'Foo' is not supported by the language
first.dll: (Location of symbol related to previous error)
