Memory Leaks in My Planner Web Part

Just spent an evening hunting down and fixing memory leaks in the MLG My Planner web part. The code was opening SPSite and SPWeb objects and then not disposing them. Level 101 error by whoever wrote it!

The layout of the code is a bit bizarre. There’s the main web part project, and 6 other supporting projects, all of which are required by the web part, but not used by another other project. They each only contain 1 or 2 files. This is totally unnecessary and leads to having to ship 6 extra dlls. When I get a bit more time to work on it I’ll have to combine them all into one dll.
