No, but not for the reason you'd think:

If we're to insist that the MS extensions are deprecated (as at least 
*I* do), then it won't do to have them more accessible than the 
(superior) replacements in dotgnu-libs.  This is why I wanted to make 
ECMA-only libs the default.  But Rhys had another suggestion last 

[21:58] <S11001001> I just think it's a problem, that for example the
presence of MS collections discourages development of non-MS
collection alternatives
[21:59] <rhysw> I wasn't aware that it was discouraging development -
MS collections are pretty basic and stupid anyway
[21:59] <chillywilly> it promotes borg-like bahavior ;)
[22:00] nb (address@hidden) joined #dotgnu.
[22:00] <rhysw> on the subject of non-MS libraries, perhaps we should
roll dotgnu-libs back into pnetlib - it might get more exposure that

So how about this?

If you'll think back a few years, the term "pirate" was formerly
applied to publishers that didn't pay the author.  But now it's been
turned completely around. It's now applied to members of the public
who escape from the control of the publisher. It's being used to
convince people that only a nasty enemy of the people would ever do
this forbidden copying. It says that "sharing with your neighbor is
the moral equivalent of attacking a ship."
