Hello Marek,

Good point :-). Consider the blog as an "early warning" ;-).

Probably both ;-)

* System.Reflection.Assembly* attributes are probably a bug (or
unimplemented in beta 1).

* Security attributes are not reported by design (AFAIK it was talked
about - but finally not considered pseudo). I requested the feature to MS a
while back - and it's actually one request for which the answer wasn't "for
consideration after 2.0". Anyway I won't hold my breath (just in case ;-).
