Obfuscate public members of DLL files

I'm aware that "SmartAssembly does not obfuscate public members of DLL files, because the DLL would be unusable." But is there an option to force SmartAssembly to obfuscate everything except what I exclude, like it does for an executable?

I'm afraid there isn't an option to force obfuscation. We do have a feature request to add an attribute to force it (reference SA-1569) and I've +1'd it on your behalf.
My apologies as I know this isn't the answer you were hoping for!

Any news on SA-1569 ?
I am working on obfuscating a .NET solution where a few assemblies are merged into facade so that the facade will expose only a few selected types to clients. I need to obfuscate everything in merged assemblies except the types explicitly excluded.
SA documentation (http://documentation.red-gate.com/display/SA6/Troubleshooting+name+mangling) mentions KeepPublicMembersAccessible (former ExcludePublicMembers) attribute, but unfortunately it is not fully documented.
Would this be a correct usage of KeepPublicMembersAccessible attribute?
Will it cause the effect I need (obfuscating public members)?
