You just want to change the references to an assembly from the desktop
version to the SL version? With Cecil it's like:

var assembly = AssemblyFactory.GetAssembly (file);
foreach (var reference in assembly.MainModule.AssemblyReferences) {
	if (!IsTargetAssembly (reference))

	reference.Version = new Version (2, 0, 5, 0);
AssemblyFactory.SaveAssembly (assembly, file);

Now it doesn't guarantee that the resulting assembly is coherent,
visibility wise, as you may have used methods that are not visible or
not existent in SL.
