Just one more small one. It seems csc treats 4 slashes as a regular
comment while your patch is treating it as doc comment. So

//// Some comment
using System;
using System.IO;

causes :

Class1.cs(2) warning CS1587: XML comment is placed on an invalid
language element which can not accept it. Csc gives the same error if
there are only 3 slashes - ///.

Apart from that mcs with the doc patch now builds the nant sources which
use xml comments extensively - so they are a pretty good test. I'm just
testing with ndoc to see how it likes the xml output.
