Groan... it's bad enough they keep breaking backwards compatibility,
but what's much worse is that the upgrade is never 100% correct. Builds
are broken in subtle and hard to track down ways. It's why VS upgrades
get put off for as long as possible. I won't even think of upgrading to
Whidbey until several years after its release.
