It's Microsoft's daft assembly resolution policy.  Unless the version numbers 
and public key tokens exactly match, it goes nuts.  Of course, any 
implementation other than Microsoft's is going to have different version 
numbers and tokens!

It may be possible to adjust things in the application configuration file so 
that version gets remapped to whatever MS wants the version so be.  
But I'm no app config file expert.

Does anyone know how I can put a directive in an assembly to say "match 
anything - I don't care".
