I know .. unfortunately ...

That documentation is taken directly from the ECMA Spec (see here in less pretty format).. http://dotgnu.org/pnetlib-doc/System/MethodAccessException.html

It does not work that way with Mono , try it yourself . Compare it with Portable.net's code and tell me *one* place where I forgot a _ILClrCheckAccess :- it is the first method called in any reflection internal call. I could disable that, but that still means you are calling a non-standard API method from one .dll to another, which I will have to fake - which is finally BAD CODE in both places.

Bug for Bug compatibility with an unstable VM is not what Portable.net needs as of now ...

IMHO these small things come into play when you are being evaluated by a customer. To be a stable product , all this will have to be rewritten ... But I think Ximian/Novell will find some customer to fund that ... ;)
