comment Is (1/(1/x)) always a perfect round trip?
@Carson63000, I would expect 0.0 to fail, which is why I stipulated "non-zero".

comment Why do code generators always use fully-qualified identifiers?
What if I'm from Andorra and want to create a class named Source, which in the local language, Catalan, is Font? :-P

comment Most secure method of asynchronous exchange of randomized loot in a strictly offline ARPG
Sorry, I misunderstood the term "face-to-face online". So you want to achieve this with two offline copies of the game, correct?

comment Advices on structure and names for namespaces and classes
DbConnection is used in System.Data.Common. If someone is using your library alongside other databases, DbConnection will be ambiguous. They will have to fully qualify System.Data.Common.DbConnection and MyFramework.Database.DbConnection. It's for you to decide whether this will be an issue. Don't be afraid of long names. MyFrameworkConnection makes it perfectly clear what the class does.

comment dechex(4000) - Why is it not signed?
It's a lot easier for you to add 0x to the start of a string when you need it than it is to remove it when you don't.

comment Is 'using' appropriate in a context where there is nothing to dispose?
@RobertHarvey, I see what you're saying. I was suggesting that if the using code compiles, then the objecet is guaranteed to be disposable. As you say, disposing can be as simple as writing a closing HTML tag.

Just to clarify, "The use of using requires the presence of a Dispose() method via the IDispose interface." At least, this is the case in .Net.
