Thanks, thats interesting...I get the feeling that there is some desire to escape some of the dll-hell type messes that can occur on MS platforms. At any rate, from that message this :

makes me wonder...if I download a Dll ( in this case, a windows-version MySql dll ), should I do anything else besides just adding it as an assembly reference? Do I even need to do a gacutil -i on it? Do I need to make a pc file for it?

There are a few reasons, but this message touches on one of the core problems:
