What are your thoughts on the portable library?

I am considering moving Sterling into the portable library for multi-targeting and allowing it to live happily wherever you want it to - Silverlight 3, 4, 5 (it'll come), Windows Phone 7 (8?) or the desktop. I can do this with linked libraries as I am now, but portable library would make it easier.

The negatives?

1. It's only CTP right now

2. You have to install an extension

See:

Right now, just a thought, happy to continue doing linked libraries as well, but what are your thoughts?

Jeremy, I, for one, would rather not see a CTP dependency, particularly one that would also affect visual studio.

Thanks!
