[Mono-dev] Utilizing the C# Parser

I don't think any of it depends on GTK#. If I remeber well it doesn't depend
on the Project either. Since you don't want to resolve the elements and
things like that you want to check
monodevelop/Core/src/ICSharpCode.SharpRefactory and not

The difference is that the CSharpBinding use ICSharpCode.SharpRefactory to
parse the documents and then "translate" it into Monodevelop AST tree (a
generic one so we can handle multiple languages) and resolve the items like
the types and namespaces. So, the bindings do use the Project class and its
friends so it can make the resolving.

So, use the ICSharp(...) and check the (...)Bindings to know how to use it

A side note: the ICSharpCode.SharpRefactory is GPL and comes from the
SharpDevelop project. I'm not sure, but SharpDevelop2 is beta right now and
it changed the license to LGPL... so seems a better choise, specially if
they already support C# 2.0 (aka generics and stuff like that :)).
