Ah, okay. Yes, .NET will handle the situation in a similar fashion, so
you should be okay.

Not really.  There is the Fluent NHibernate library.  I've been trying
it out, and I've found it a bit easier that the XML based mappings.

One tool I've found handy with NHibernate is the NHibernate Profiler.
It's pretty helpful for showing what's going on.  It's a commercial
product, but well worth it IMHO.
