This is E X A C T L Y how Microsoft "defeats" non-Windows work... by making
all non-Microsoft workflows a near impossibility to repeat.
Unfortunately, it shows that the .NET cultural environment has not changed
in the 5 years since I've used it.
Jamie Cansdale was nearly brought to court over encouraging open-source
work.

Thank the Gods for Ruby.
