I'm totally with you on that. I've advised my team to *not* look at the
source. When I install the VS 2008 RTM, the first thing I'm going to do
is check that runtime source-level debugging is disabled. The reasons
for this is exactly the same reasons as outlined in the rules for
contributing: I don't want *any* MS prior art appearing in the Smart
Device Framework.
