MS's implementation does not use the XmlSerializer class to read and parse the 
project build files.

I have not been able to find detailed information about many aspects of 
MSBuild. Some of the "big picture" items are covered in articles, but there 
are many methods those precise effect is not clear. The docs that I have 
found are mostly stubs with no substantial description.
