Acceptable for who? What do you hope to gain from such a versioning scheme?

@whatsisname Once it's COM, doesn't necessarily have to be VBA, pretty much anything that can consume COM can use it.

comment scripting support in a C# application
You want to allow others to write scripts for your application, or do you want to call a script from your application?

comment Managing an undercover SVN repository
@georgesl git-svn is a valid approach, just keep in mind there may be certain SVN operations that don't map very well into git-svn workflow. Also, the article Michael points to is 5 years old, that's a long time for tools to change (and hopefully improve).

Although those are valid points, they don't really answer the question.

comment Managing an undercover SVN repository
Do you commit frequently because you want a remote backup in case something horrible happens to your machine, or just as a safety net in case you want to undo stuff? If safety net, you may as well just install git locally and use that to commit until everything is "ready." You may also be interested in this question Using git within an svn checkout? (without git-svn).

comment Moving away from .Net to Ruby and coping without intellisense
To be fair, RubyMine isn't that expensive, especially compared to Microsoft pricing for Visual Studio (non express). Might be worth just biting the bullet and paying for a personal license.

comment Is there any point in distributing separate .NET 3.5 and 4.0 assemblies?
Actually default method arguments (and named parameters) are a compiler feature, not a framework feature. You can target .NET 3.5 and still use those features, they just won't compile with older compilers (like what's built into VS 2008).
