These being the ones where they are being loaded dynamically? These are the 
types of cases I was thinking animal-sniffer wouldn't be able to help. These are 
where I think the rubber hits the road and the only real way is to run them in 
their correct deployment version and see if they pass. i.e. unit tests can load 
them and run them correctly... I don't really know any other way around that 
unless you wrote some kind of a tree visitor for the sources which could 
determine that reflection was being used to lookup and load a class, and even 
then, you'd have to have that logic be able to find the exact values being 
passed in. Leads me to think the only *real* way to do it is unit tests in the 
target platforms.
