I noticed another issue: the project does not support tests. Test 
project will require NUnit addin (am not sure if it exists for 2010) and 
thus excludes Express users.
But that should not mean that it's okay for Windows-based hackers to 
totally ignore those NUnit tests.

It might be still possible to not be based on nunit adding but rather 
include a standalone test runner project (executable) that includes all 
nunit stuff.
