Many open source projects are keeping the key pair (*.snk)
together with the source code in their repository because
the security significance of the key is zero.

Given how .NET assembly signing was designed, no one
would be able to generate a compatible Lucene.Net assembly
from source code w/out having to update assembly
references in all projects using Lucene.Net.

This is hardly compatible with open source principles
and should be avoided.
