    Managed Beta 2 still contains instant client?

      The description of the managed provider beta 2 says this: "In this second beta, ODP.NET, Managed Driver can perform the data access functions for Oracle Developer Tools for Visual Studio"

      So I was kind of surprised when I ran the installer for the version with the developer tools and found that it wants to install the Instant Client. What's using that? Is there any reason why it's necessary to develop for the managed client?
