Because there is both Assert class and Assert method in that scope.
Since the test class is derived from Assertion, it guesses "Assert"
is NUnit.Framework.Assertion.Assert method, not NUnit.Framework.Assert

So if you want to use static Assert methods, you can use alias by
using statement, like:

	using AssertType = NUnit.Framework.Assert;

and call AssertType.AreEqual().
