SQL Server Compact Edition

I have used nHydrate for another project and loved it.  It made my life so much easier but my new project requires and embedded database. I know nHydrate was only designed to work with SQL server so i was wondering if it was possible to get it to work with the compact editions or is that not possible? I would really like to use nHydrate if at all possible.

I am sorry but at this time we do not support compact framework. There are a few issues like stored procedures and memory footprints.

Adding support for SQLCE would be a great feature for this product. I have many small projects that leverage SQLCE databases simply for the simplicity of not requiring the end user to install a SQL Server instance. I also use SQLCE in compact framework projects but not nearly as often. There are other ORM tools out there that support SQLCE but the coding syntax is terrible compared to nHydrate.
