comment Ordered enumeration: IEnumerable or Array (in C#)?
Even then, the order could be implicit. That's the main issue I'm having. I understand that the concept of LINQ is to emulate database functions, and as per 1NF, records are unordered. Unfortunately, the real world is rarely 1NF.

An ordering method as an argument... Hmmm, interesting!

And I don't think extending IOrderedEnumerable will make me any fans. Some lists are already ordered (think a parsed log file, for example. The order is the line number, but there's no point to sort by it if it was read sequentially.

And I fixed the list. Thanks for pointing it out.

comment Ordered enumeration: IEnumerable or Array (in C#)?
What I want to avoid is making a series of functions which work "only if ordered", then months later someone uses the library on an unordered collection and wonders why it's giving funky results. Besides good documentation which everyone will have read thoroughly, of course.

comment On the frontier between work and home
Thanks. I was thinking that would come up, "ask your employer". I'm not sure there are really that many places where an employer would say yes. I can only think of variations of "hell no!"

@FrustratedWithFormsDesigner I see your point, and I agree. As much as I care about the case though, I would not pay a lawyer's fees just so I can be sure I can publish open source code.

comment Common practice for abandonware in SVN
As far as I understand svn:ignore, it's to keep things out, like VS .suo files, local stuff, temp stuff, etc.

Damn. It's was a solid idea too. Better inform SVN they need to work on this ASAP!

What would be the client-side and server-side configurations? You don't need to explain in full, but if you have the properties, I can google them.
