This class is shared between all (or most) assemblies under mcs/class
and resides in a shared directory. But your fake is just as good as the
current code since the calls are just stub (at the moment).

It really depend on your use but, 90% of the time, I think you're better
using the same key (e.g. if you want users to be able to replace it with
a newer version that includes fixes).

Have fun!
