Thanks, I hadn't considered that end of testing. It definitely sounds 
useful. I guess I need to make something more general purpose.

A netcf test mode might help, but it may not be useful enough - for 
example it wouldn't work if the test client was one that didn't support 
netcf - when connecting to a test driver, it's always on the local 
machine, correct?
