Might I suggest that you instead use an explicit "update" mechanism to
produce the reference results?  Requiring that you create the reference
results requires that you actually have .NET around to produce them
(which may not always be true), and also means that if .NET has a bug we
can't provide a correct fix (bug-for-bug compatibility isn't always
desirable -- see all the fixes made to System.Reflection.Emit).
