Unit test for Project.RemoveItem(...)
With a project loaded into a MSBuild.Build.Evaluation.Project it is not possible to remove a <Reference> from the project since RemoveItem(ProjectItem item) is not implemented.
RemoveItem(..) used by 'NuGet.exe update'
Tested with Mono 3.4.0 (MonoFramework-MDK-188.8.131.52.macos10.xamarin.x86) on Mac.
Example test case:
string xml =
@"<Project ToolsVersion='4.0' xmlns='http://schemas.microsoft.com/developer/msbuild/2003'>
<Reference Include='Microsoft.Build' />
var project = new Microsoft.Build.Evaluation.Project (XmlReader.Create (new StringReader (xml)));
var referenceItem = project.GetItems ("Reference").Single ();
int count = project.GetItems ("Reference").Count;
Assert.AreEqual (0, count);
