Understood, I'll take that to the user list for a bigger audience -
maybe people will see problems that we are overlooking.

I see.  I wasn't aware the client profile was dropped again - spending
most if not all of my working hours in Java land has made me lose track,
or so it seems.  In that case splitting the assembly doesn't make to
much sense.

And the client profile builds can be removed when log4net drops support
for .NET 4.0 ten years from now ;-)
