Sorry, I misinterpreted what I'd read as saying it was all going to be
implemented "in C#, .NET Framework and MS SQL Server Compact Edition
using Visual Studio 2008." On more careful rereading I now see that
that is merely describing what Graham has already done. Sorry I missed
that subtlety the first time around.

Graham, given that this confused me, I suspect it may confuse others
sometime, too (notwithstanding that I am probably more easily confused
than the averagely-brained bear). It might be worth adding something
to the Software page that makes more explicit that this is not the
long term implementation choice.
