No, I did not miss the interface.  When I started implementing the
System.CodeDom.Compiler interface is when I realized how useless it

Anyways, you can use if you want, it is just that the CodeDom nodes
are useless for the C# compiler for its own compilation.  It has other
uses besides that, but not in mcs.
