The tests performed by the compiler are just one part of the equation.  

A full set of external tests is needed.  We need something like FxCop
to run on our assemblies to address all the potential problems.

I posted once to some Microsoft Forum about it, and I remember that the
maintainers of the code were willing to help us out.
