Reviews for this release

Works perfectly and right out of the box. Simple setup, well defined project scope, and leverages the latest Roslyn tech (quite efficiently, AFAICT). Becomes invaluable as the architecture of your projects grow by detecting inconsistencies early. By writing the `.nsdepcop` files first, you can force yourself to "just do the right thing" immediately rather than piling up random hacks where they don't belong, with only the prospect of a better organized future. Finally, it allows you to convey the relationship between namespaces and projects in a codified and automatically verifiable way, which is definitely useful for team members and people exploring the code. Conversely, if you're discovering foreign code, it allows you to experiment with better assurance that your code fits the design (which is great if you don't yet have the full picture in mind). All-in-all, a very nice complement to integration tests. Please note however that it's only useful if your architecture is sound to begin with (it's not a design tool). If you don't need to code in the relationships of your namespaces nor enforce them (for example if your codebase is very small), then it may become a burden.
