Here is a good diversion.  Really worth reading:


A quote to whet appetites:

"One fairly good example of this is how XML 
integrates with C#.  We have this notion of attributes 
in C# that allows you to add declarative information 
to types and members... we also give you the ability 
to put attributes on classes and on fields in your 
classes that say "When this class goes to XML, it 
needs to become this tagname in XML and it needs to 
go into this XML namespace.... the system can simply turn a 
specific class into XML, send it over the wire, and 
when it comes back we can reconstitute the object 
on the other side... you can ask our XML serialization 
infrastructure or our Web services infrastructure to 
translate any given class into XML... take the schema 
for the class... build a specialized parser that takes 
derives from our generic XML parser... then override 
methods and add logic into the parser so that it is 
specialized for that schema... we've instantiated 
a parser that at native code speed can rip through 
XML...then we cache it ... until the next time 
a class with an indentical schema comes by 
and it jus goes 'BAM'  incredible throughput..."
