C# allows the use of keywords as identifiers. The '@' prefix (when not to a
string) marks a word that should always be interpreted as an identifier, no
matter what. For instance:

class @class
  public int @int = 5;
  public void @void() { }
  public delegate @delegate(int @float);
  public @class @operator(@class. at delegate @params) { }

Of course, this is rather bad style, but it does allow C# to interoperate
more freely with other languages.
