      Okay, here's what I've got so far. I have the runtime (in lib/csharp)
      mostly done. As I said, I was using 2.7.1a4, I didn't track what changed
      between it and the release version. I have the code generator done (in
      CSharpCodeGenerator.java and CSharpBlockFinishingInfo.class). I have done
      the actions, but there're not in the zip file yet, since I haven't had time
      to go back through and double check them, but I recall that the default java
      actions mostly work.

      I'm sure there are bugs in the code generator, which I uncover as I build
      more examples. Also I'm sure there are bugs in the runtime.

      I originally did this in VS.net, but I've ripped that out and just put a
      makefile in the lib/csharp directory.

      I had also been signing it with a key of mine so I could give the library a
      strong name and put it in the global assembly cache. I'm not sure we want
      to do that, since we'd need some centrally managed key in order for everyone
      to share it. OTOH, if we don't do that we'll end up with zillions of copies
      of the runtime (which I'm calling antlr-msnet.dll). I'm open to discussion
      on this. Maybe I'll just generate a special key that everyone could use,
      but that seems to defeat the purpose. For this "release", I removed the key
      and strong name. That means that for the examples to work, you need to copy
      antlr-msnet.dll into the directory where each example is built. I've only
      done that for the calc example, but it's easy enough to do yourself. Once
      we decide on if the runtime should be signed, or how else we should handle
      it, I'll fix all the examples.

      All of the examples I've included here work (or worked at one time), but as
      I said I've only gone back and fixed the calc example to copy the runtime.

      The files are available at
      http://www.windsor.com/erics/antlr-csharp-2.7.1.zip. It should contain only
      the files I've added, but if anything's missing let me know.

      I'm interested in any feedback, especially bug fixes and what we should do
      about the runtime. For the time being, I'll collect and integrate fixes,
      and I'll work on the actions. When it's stable enough I'll send it to Ter
      who can include it in the distribution if he sees fit.
