This would have been such an incredably fantastic thing to have under a more permissive liscence then the MS-LA. Any real open source project is going to stay the hell away from this code, especially if they want to implement something similar, because if they ever get accused of having derived their project from Singularity, they could end up losing the project (anything derivitives of an MS-LA liscenced project also have to be MS-LA liscenced, and MS will own full rights)
