I have created a strongly typed dataset based Web Service, using VS, that works great. However when consuming it in an Android project, it does not support System.ComponentModel.Design.HelpKeywordAttribute

How do I get around this, as this type is automatically used by design code generators in VS, so even if I manually remove all (which is a lot) of references to this type, it will be regenerated everytime I make any changes to my dataset (xsd)?
