I will. Now I only have to find the time to do it. :-)

Yes... one always hopes that a contribution comes with the contributor
attached, but it isn't always so.

This is a very useful discussion for me, since I'm trying to understand
what changes are needed in order to begin distributing NUnit on an equal 
basis for both MS.Net and Mono. But that's getting off the topic of
