Oh, I see!  Well, I was surprised by the quality of the betas of
the .NET Framework and Visual Studio .NET, considering they're
betas -- the *rest* of the .NET "vision" strikes me as _very_
dubious (no matter how well Passport is implemented, for example,
the idea of a closed-source, single-point-of-failure service
becoming crucial to the functioning of most or all of eCommerce
strikes me as VERY bad from a technical viewpoint).
