If REEF is purely dlls and the version inside REEF is consistent, we might not need it. However
we do have executables. For example, Evaluator, form evaluator, the client injected code may
reference some  other dlls that may have version conflict. In this case, we need to leverage
the app.config to specify the fall back version in the case of no-compatible.

We should upgrade to the newest version in all projects. In 0.17, we target .NET Standard
and can't have incompatible dependencies.

I don't understand why we even have `App.config` files in REEF.
Wouldn't all of REEF by definition have conflict-free dependencies? If so, we should be able
to delete the `App.config` across the source repository, right?
