Kentor usas identity a lot internally, and the token serialization.  There
is a real chance there is a type that has not been implemented in mono.

I'm trying to use Kentor.AuthServices https://github.com/KentorIT/au
thservices with Mono 4.8, it's plain C# so I can't figure out why it
doesn't work.

In my installation is basically an httpmodule contained in an assembly that
reference another assembly.

During module initialization I obtain

Exception while initOnce: System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException:
Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. --->
System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for
'Kentor.AuthServices.HttpModule.Saml2AuthenticationModule' threw an
exception. ---> System.TypeLoadException: Could not load type
'Kentor.AuthServices.Configuration.KentorAuthServicesSection' from assembly
'Kentor.AuthServices, Version=, Culture=neutral,

The strange thing is that the error occurs inside an object that is already
part of Kentor.AuthServices so the assembly is loaded and running.
KentorAuthServicesSection is a class that inherit
System.Configuration.ConfigurationSection so it's pretty standard and all
the web.config configuration came from a running Windows installation so
I'm pretty sure is correct.

I checked Mono assembly loading log and there are no error there...dunno
where to look, some hint? Thanks in advance.
