FYI, my experience is that an entire manifest must be distributed.  As 
the manifest in question actually lists 3 DLLs, IIUC, you must ship all 
4 files - the 3 DLLs and the manifest, even if only one of the DLLs is 
actually used.

This is from memory some time back though, so apologies in advance if 
I'm mis-remembering.
