It would be a VERY nice thing to see an expanded set of documentation and examples related to writing PowerShell providers that go beyond the simple examples currently related to access databases.
A webcast or training video would be awesome! Especially to go over things like
-How to determine what type of provider would best suit my specific need with actual examples showing those reasons)
-What are some things I can do to "think" about things through the "lens" of a provider e.g. dir (Get-ChildItem) "behaves" the same in a file provider as it does in the registry provider
-What are some "Gotchas" or things to watch out for
-Expanded how-to on deploying a provider to a pc or an enterprise.
