I'm learning more about WinForms hour by hour.  I'm currently implementing 
"ButtonBase".  This uses the "ControlPaint" class to draw 3D borders and 
what-not.  It is theoretically possible that we could add some simple theme 
support to "ControlPaint" to match up the border styles, appearance of radio 
buttons, etc.  After we get the basic stuff working of course.

Fantatic!  I'll try to get the "Form" class filled out today so that 
"AutoScaleBaseSize" is declared.  Could you send me the code for your test
