Connector/Net API pieces missing

It appears that I was incorrect and MySqlConnection actually belongs to the MySql.Data.MySqlClient namespace. It was just confusing from the documentation. However, the behavior of the code would seem to imply that MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlConnection is a subclass of System.Data.Common.DbConnection and I really couldn't get this from the documentation. The subclass/superclass relationships are important when
writing code going to multiple databases. Would it be possible to have a plain vanilla Sandcastle report on the dll. (I think the Hana representation is clearest.)

What I really need are superclass/subclass relationships between all the MySql classes and the more generic .Net classes. A mapping of the MySql classes to the corresponding .Net classes would also be useful.


Heavily revised - see above

I had put this in another section, but this one may be more appropriate. I was looking at section 21.2.7 Connector/Net API Reference. I see sections for the MySql.Data.MySqlClient and MySql.Data.Types namespaces but not for the MySql.Data namespace, which apparently contains MySqlConnection and a number of other .Net classes. Am I looking at the wrong section?
