[Mono-devel-list] [PATCH] Assembly.GetReferencedAssemblies shouldn't return codebase

Simply put, Assembly.GetReferencedAssemblies() should returns an
"limited" AssemblyName array (with null values for CodeBase/
EscapedCodeBase). Which means that the security checks aren't required
(for CAS) as the important informations (the path) isn't available from

This is important because it without this Assembly.GetReferenced
Assemblies couldn't be called from partial trust (like it can be under
MS framework).

Does anyone depend on that behavior ? (i.e. getting the CodeBase from
the AssemblyName returned from Assembly.GetReferencedAssemblies).

If not then I'll commit this immediately (with unit tests), else I'll
wait for the depending code to be fixed before committing.
