Hello Zoltan!

    This patch is wonderful!  So simple and elegant, I am very amazed
with the clarity of this.  

    Please, feel free to apply the patch to CVS.

   Currently there is some code to output a separate file (.nsc), which
we will likely keep for Windows compatibility.  Paolo has promised me a
Mono runtime call to extract the namespaces quickly without the cache.

   Having the namespace information will also help me clean up
SimpleName/MemberAccess, because currently they implement the "delayed"
namespace hack, which contributes largely to the complexity of those

   Also the C# generics support make these rules more complicated, so I
want to take this opportunity to clean it up.
