[Mono-list] Status of Bison port to C#

I just want to complement what Nick had to say.

We are interested in the Bison port for the C# compiler because Bison
has better error recovery mechanisms during parsing when compared to
Yacc (which is what we are using now).  

Right now, I am managing to get pretty good error reports with Yacc, so
porting to Bison is not a priority, and I do understand enough of Yacc
that I could probably duplicate the error recovery mechanisms from Bison
with little effort, so Nick has been kind enough to focus on more
pressing things for Mono in general.
