That it does. We're having talks today over email about how to align all this stuff and get builds out that always work on the released version of SL.

Very true, consider it a rookie mistake. =P If I had only seen that email earlier ...

Yep, very true. The tough part is having the language's repositories be "buildable" on the currently released version of SL; where our test infrastructure makes sure we build against a semi-daily build of SL.

Post SL Beta2 we may just freeze the Silverlight version we build against to Beta2. Like I said, me and some other folks are trying to figure out the least painful way to do this.
