    The language to use for the generated proxy class.  Choose from
    'VB', 'JS', 'VJS' or provide a fully-qualified name for a class
    implementing System.CodeDom.Compiler.CodeDomProvider.  The default
is 'CS'
    (CSharp).  Short form is '/l:'.

If we don't support "fully-qualified name", feel free to post a patch
for it. It will be accepted.

I may consider it if:
      * wsdl works for the default languages even if
        system.web/compilation/buildproviders is empty.
      * machine.config is not loaded for the default languages
      * It does not add a dependency to the System.Web assembly.

I don't have CS in my machine.config, so wsdl wouldn't work for me after
your patch. This is what I mean by "changing wsdl behavior".

In any case, loading the whole machine.config just to read a couple of
values, and which are already read by ASP.NET, is not a good solution.

BTW, in general, any patch that adds the same 20 lines of code in
several files smells like a hack or something wrongly designed. We are
very constrained by MS.NET design, and sometimes there isn't any other
option, but I try to keep this to a minimum.
