Are you building with the 3.5 (or 4.0) compiler? That should still
handle extension methods, even when targeting 2.0. At least that's how
IP 2.6 worked.

Removing all of the extension methods is too large a change to consider.

That's really up to you. If the changes are minimal, then I think it'll be fine.

I don't know what to do about IStrongBox though. That's a question for Dino.
