[Mono-list] xsp2 and AJAX

Thanks for that feedback Chris - ok, I'll add a bug for that
EnableEventValidation thing.

(See what you mean about MS changing Atlas completely in the December drop -
that must have been kind of annoying.)

I wouldn't use atlas for a web application anytime soon.  I worked to
implement a bunch of stuff MS put out, and then they went and basically
changed a lot about the way atlas works.  So I'm holding off on working
on it again until things stabilize a bit more, and I'd suggest you do
the same.

I don't really know much about the other ajax-on-.net projects..
certainly not enough to comment on which to use.  That said, they should
all work, and situations where they don't are (probably our) bugs which
we'll of course want to fix :)

It'll definitely be in before the atlas implementation is fleshed out.
Could you add a bug for this?
