I did like the tut from the readme from the DBus CVS.
I haven't had the time to play with it yet, but I will be doing a little
hello world app. I'll use this as an excuse to use monodoc for the first
time, to put the example there.
I love monodoc, I don't code without it open, but I wish some of the
documentation was more complete (after I do this, I'll have no excuse not
to update it).
If I have any problems getting it going, I'll mail the list, but it looks
pretty strait forward (and powerful).

ones. As you mentioned, Beagle is a little complex for learning
