Ok, then there is a gap in the premises. After I commit my changes,
you don't have to wait for me. I can't waste my time on only-win32
implementation which can be used in theory. I don't deny the value
of native win32 implementation, but it is totally out of my concern.
I also don't care any structural changes you would like to make
in common area, as long as it just works. I even don't think existing
EventLogEntry.ctor() is good enough since it requires everything at
construction time (and I guess that it won't meet WindowsAPI
(now I read your next message before sending it as I'm ready to
commit) You don't have to spend your time to include my code.
And I don't use XML here and stick to current code (I hate extraneous
