This is correct, what an ugly dependency to have there, its used by the
on-the-flight resource compiler.
There is one option though, it seems that the code is fairly standalone,
and we could include the source code under an internal namespace:
gmcs -d:NET_2_0 System.Resources/ResXResourceReader.cs -r:System.Drawing
So we could link to these directly. Is this a bad idea?
