[Mono-list] Secure WCF web service under mono

 From my quick search, it seems a typical ASP.NET role provider scenario
is to use ServiceAuthorizationBehavior. We don't support it.
I'm not sure how it is involved in the entire WCF security stack, but
at least I can say, if it requires secure messaging, then it won't
come soon. WCF security stack is huge and we only have incomplete
work from years ago.
