Fine, I'm looking forward to it. Is this release still compileable using
.NET 2.0?

I'm not really sure whether using the same assembly version is a good
idea - in my experience, having different versions of the file using the
same assembly version can lead to some confusions.

But maybe the drop-in character outweighs the disadvantages.
