Internal Mono cecil was upgraded but it's not bundled in term on publicly
available reference. It's only installed into GAC because we need it
to run mono tools.

Previous version 0.9.5 was installed also as a reference which I agree
was a mistake but removing it would be a breaking change.

You can have multiple versions of Cecil installed and as Cecil has
major breaking changes between minor releases it's probably the only
option you are left with.
