System.AppContext class provides a global string-keyed dictionary of Boolean values.
It offers library writers a standard way for allowing consumers to switch new features on or off.
The consumer of a library enables a feature as follows:
AppContext.SetSwitch ("MyLibrary.SomeBreakingChange", true);
Code from that library can check for that switch as follows:
bool isDefined, switchValue; isDefined = AppContext.TryGetSwitch ("MyLibrary.SomeBreakingChange",out switchValue);
TryGetSwitch returns false if the switch is undefined.
