Ok, I believe the use case behind this bug was fixed with the native reference / binding project work in 2.8.

If you have a native reference in a normal library, we don't copy that in, however if you have a native reference in a binding project library it is copied in.

Since the 99% use case is to use binding projects to wrap native libraries, I believe this is ok.

In the rare 1% use case, I believe using https://developer.xamarin.com/samples/mac/UseMSBuildToCopyFilesToBundleExample/ is acceptable.

Please reopen if this is unacceptable due to me missing a use case.
