We should look into it, but I suspect it might have been X11, since
pieces of it end up in the class libraries.  But we need to check with
the original authors.

The latest beta contains many docs;  What is of most importance is the
functional specification (as detailed on the Wiki page), some of those
will map to some classes in the documentation, some will not.

You can return fake values, throw NotImplementedException, that sort of
