I've made a separate branch that contains only wvdbus-sharp and
wvdotnet (a helper library).  You can find it here:

Press the "download" button and github will give you a tarball.

Versaplex has lots of sample code, but you can find really simple
examples in wvdbus-sharp/t/*.cs (the unit test code).

You may have to make the same change here, but hopefully you'll find
the authentication code extremely straightforward in this case.

Have fun,
