Indeed, Mono's ResXResourceWriter uses ConvertTo (typeof (byte[]))
when a certain TypeConverter supports it, but fails to convert
it back, unless the patch I attached is applied.

But the real issue still remains: why does MS.NET not use ConvertTo
(typeof (byte[]))? Because the type is serializable? I'll run some
