Thanks for the excellent toolkit. In getting started I ran into a couple of issues:

#1 - A small gotcha in the ExampleApplication: when you copy and paste the auth_key and the shared secret from a browser, it seems to include whitespace at the end. This is hard to catch in the sample's UI and it keeps the authentication from working. It might be nice to trim the whitespace off before making auth calls.

#2 - The Uploader does not correctly parse error responses. The property Status should be marked:
XmlAttribute("stat", Form=XmlSchemaForm.Unqualified)
XmlElement("status", Form=XmlSchemaForm.Unqualified)
and the Code and Message properties do not correlate to the response XML

#3 - When declaring an xml enumeration, like ResponseStatus, it's probably a good idea to include:
as the first enumerated value. Otherwise, mismatched XML will be interpreted as the first enumerated value, which in the case of ResponseStatus, is "OK".
