Zoltan, I guess you meant we turn *off* the verifier :)

Anyway we can do anything since we're making this a special, mono-specific

(a) MS at fulltrust always has it's verifier (or at least parts of it) off.
Mono (always at fulltrust) will have it's own on, except if SkipVerification is
present. This means the same application modified/re-assembled without
SkipVerification would still fail under Mono (and run, at fulltrust, under MS

(b) if we don't re-use (or duplicate) CAS code then we'll miss cases where a
superset of SkipVerification is being used. E.g. an unrestricted
SecurityPermission, an unrestricted PermissionSet, a NamedPermissionSet, ...
and probably others that indirectly implies fulltrust (e.g. UnmanagedCode) but
that would need testing

Both cases are unlikely to be found out of "common" compilers.

[1] and I don't really mind that since it has it's own advantages too
