Do these low-level classes belong to certain namespaces or are they 
everywhere? Would be nice if they only were in the System namespace, but I 
guess that's not the case?

What do you mean with everything builds on top of the low-level? The 
low-level classes are C# classes, right? Do the high-level C# classes use the 
low-level C# classes? I'm confused. Can't find where I can RTFM, maybe the

First I though the low-level classes contained OS native calls, but that's 
not the case? The low-level classes contain methods that's specific for pnet 
and pnet uses OS native calls?

How many are the low-level and how many are the high-level classes?
