+1! Indeed. Thank you, Glenn. Even though .NET is not my thing, it's
valuable to have this sort of tools on any language.

One minor gripe, though... can't we ask for transformation for more
than one format at once? Optimus does this. And it's kinda useful to
avoid more than one requests per URI... :)

Anyway, I've passed it along to the guys at the company. I'll pass any
comments that pop up, eventually.
