[Ironruby-core] Code Review: 19compat

The behavior differences you describe should be fixed. This doesn't mean though that you should base any security related decisions upon flags like tainted and untrusted.
We are giving no security guarantees based upon these flags. The only security barriers are those defined by CLR security system.

I know I'm a bit late but I have a question.

Since IR doesn't support Ruby's security model, does this mean that (for example) it's really OK to have Object#clone not preserving the untrusted state of an object or having Kernel#trust and Kernel#untrust not raising an exception if an object is frozen, like happen on MRI 1.9?
