.net 2.0 Beta 2 and Firebird .net provider updates

I have done some updates this week on v2.0 sources to get it working with the .NET Framework 2.0 Beta 2.

I'm thinking on release an Alpha 1 for testing, but, before i want to known opinions :)

Some things to have in mind:

* The releases will be done using FirebirdClient name.

* There are changes in public namespaces name's:

FirebirdSql.Data.Firebird -> FirebirdSql.Data.FirebirdClient
FirebirdSql.Data.Firebird.Services -> FirebirdSql.Data.Services
FirebirdSql.Data.Firebird.Isql -> FirebirdSql.Data.Isql

* The CommandBuilder now inherits from the DbCommandBuilder .NET Framework class and uses his command generation.

* There will be no documentation package for now, as i'm thinking on left only documentation on Firebird and FirebirdClient specific features that are no covered by the .NET Framework documentation.

* The Schema support remains unchanged.

* The design time support needs testing but i'm not too much worried for now on this topic.

The nunit test suite is running without errors :) .

Opinions are welcome
