Truly I see the value in NPanday, and I understand it's bleeding edge 
technology at the moment. It's just that I'm tired and frustrated after 
so many hours of trying to get it working. I would really appreciate it 
if someone could get me to the point of being able to bring just one 
dependency into my project, preferably log4net.

I do agree with you that this is the way to go with .NET, so please keep 
working to improve NPanday and some-day I hope it will be as easy to use 
as m2e.

NP - it was just confusing for me as I was struggling to understand why 
I could not get things working properly.
