No turning back now. VandalSniper revision 11 has been released on Wikipedia. In addition, I am now tracking changes to the source tree with Subversion, which is what gives each release of VandalSniper its version number. I decided to number the releases with just the Subversion repository revision to simplify support and dispense with the "oh, 0.0.1 must be unstable and crappy" mentality.
Hats off to the folks in #mono, who were exceedingly helpful and supportive.
