That makes a total of my 6 cents. I promise there'll be no more "donations".

Really? I think that System.Xml vs System.XML is the only big problem right
Many projects reference it, some do it one way, some do it another way.

In MS GAC there is System.Xml.dll, mono has System.Xml.dll, but if you look
inside of any .csproj file, you'll get:

                    Name = "System.XML"
                    AssemblyName = "System.Xml"
                    HintPath =

Really cool, isn't it? I don't believe in conspiracy theory, but some could
say that MS is locking you in to using windows by introducing this kind of
ambiguity which cannot be resolved under Unix/Linux.

Beside System.Xml I haven't seen any other library name misspelled yet.
