The title of a book is part of marketing the book.

"DotGNU and Portable.NET" is why _we_ care about the book.
Thinking from this perspective is not a good marketing approach.

Rather the first questions to ask are:

* For whom are we writing the book?

* Why will these people be interested in the book?

Maybe we should have two books, one called "Learning C#", and
one called "DotGNU webservices".

In the book "Learning C#", we'll of course push Portable.NET
as the preferred C# environment.  Similarly the book "DotGNU
webservices" would push the rest of DotGNU.
