Thanks. The bug that required C# v2 to fix. I might have to backport that
specific fix. What was the fix for?

How is this achieved?. Using any value type without needing a template
change I mean...
The use of Nullables to solve (the obvious solution) doesn't require a new
target AFAICT. Just C# v2+.

YAGNI?. We can agree to differ about Token's utility. It's easy enough to
retain it locally here in any case.

Prebuild has bugs in it's Nant build file generation and vs2005/vs2008
project file generation iirc. Related to resource files I think but can't
remember the specifics at the moment, sorry.
The best way to contact me is via the list/forum. My time is very limited.
