// but F# Interactive and this script.
// This script fetches the Paket.exe component which is referenced later in the script.
// Initially the #r "paket.exe" reference is shown as unresolved. Once it has been
// downloaded by the user (by executing the first part of the script) the reference
// shows as resolved and can be used.
// Paket is then used to fetch a set of F# packages, which are then used later inn the script.
