I don't believe the TODO can be removed as the Encrypt Decrypt methods
don't allow you use custom decryptors (from what I could tell) it's 4.5
specific functionality and controlled via the Web.config.
Do you want me to expand on the TODO to make it clearer?

Before I send this, I need to change the build order in the mcs/class
makefile, and wanted to run that past you first as it strikes me as
something via fragile. I sent a message to the list a few days about it,
could you respond on that and I'll resend?

It's not actually required as the default on ReadEntityBodyMode means that
all clients of the code should go directly to input stream. The code here
is enough to ensure that calling code works.
Looking at various posts about how to used the GetBufferlessInputStream,
it looks like it needs Async reads as well as Synchronous, so it's a little
The only thing that we could potentially do is change the exception to one
you get when you try to read it buffered when classic is set.

available on nuget work, without tweaking to a person's application.

issue at the moment is that without them, you get an exception even if it
should be false. I actually think that these are used by other classes
when generating urls, not the route collection itself, but I don't know for
sure. Considering that adding them is very low risk, can we not just
accept the pull and ask for further work.
