Default [SixPack library] Beta testers wanted!

First of all sorry for the spam =)
I maintain a coding library for .NET/Mono called SixPack. It's a general purpose class library based on good architectural principles, and is currently being used in a number of websites. We think that code quality is pretty good, and we strive to improve every day.
Most of the code base comes from my last 7 years of work as a web developer in a web agency, and this means that the test bed of the library has always been windows and .NET. On the other hand I have started using GNU/Linux a couple of years ago for development and apparently the library has good support for Mono.

Main features:
- Logging
- Caching (with or without prefetching)
- Store Procedures handling
- Image Sizing
- Code Generation
- Validation
- XML Rpc support

What we really need is extensive testing in many different scenarios.
Is anyone willing to try it out for us?
The library is LGPL code and you can download it (along with documentation) here: http://code.google.com/p/sixpack-library/

We would be extremely grateful for any feedback!
