I need to look at the .NET classes to see what changes are needed to bring
them in sync with the beta-2 release. Its probably a few param changes and
references to assemblies (think jars with the DLL extension); more complex
is the need to migrate my own C# code to verify the changes work. I'll do
this before august 3. (*)

Otherwise, I'll look at the docs and see if there are any changes, updates,
better examples to go in and the like related to the changes since 1.3. Doc
freeze is later than code freeze, right.


(*) I'm porbably being unduly generous to my WA state neighbours, but since
their police just said "stop it" after pulling me over do 80mph in a 60mph
bit of I-5 yesterday, I'm feeling magnanimous.
