Context: http://lists.ximian.com/pipermail/monodroid/2012-November/012768.html

Problem: FragmentActivity.OnRetainNonConfigurationInstance() is `override`, but not `sealed override`:

Consequently, user code can override the method from C#. However, this fails during Java compilation because the Java method is `final`, and cannot be overridden: http://developer.android.com/reference/android/support/v4/app/FragmentActivity.html#onRetainNonConfigurationInstance()

Method XML declaration:

<method abstract="false" deprecated="not deprecated" final="true" name="onRetainNonConfigurationInstance" native="false" return="java.lang.Object" static="false" synchronized="false" visibility="public">

//method/[@final='true'] methods should either be non-virtual or (when overriding base class methods) be `sealed override`.
