.NET Framework does the same I want to implement (in fact I already
implemented it but I don't want to send a patch until I finish reworking the
whole ResourceManager to be MS.NET compatible). It reads neutral resources
only from the main assembly and reads localized resources only from the
appropriate satellite assembly.

This is a very big difference.
