Yes, it is completely different format.

Microsoft.Build.* assemblies and tools/xbuild.

As I said it wouldn't be good to add it to make system by default.
Classes design changed after release of .NET 2.0. It has changed so much
that I'll need to think about rewriting big part of xbuild.
I'm sure that no program should use its API (it changed/will change).

After this rewrite and some clean up in parser and tokenizer it should
be quite stable (and useful).
