While the project requires a .NET 3.5 compiler to transform the source into IL,
the resulting assembly will run on any ECMA-334 (.NET 2.0) compatible CLI. The
new language features added to C# in 3.5 all essentially boil down to
syntactical sugar. As long as you don't reference any core assemblies that are
3.5-specific (System.Linq, System.Windows, System.ServiceModel, etc) your
resulting assembly is .NET 2.0 compatible.
