For anyone who has been following mono-patches and wondering what
madness I'm up to, or those who don't, let me enlighten....

After talking with Miguel about trying to get C apps to CIL, I realized
that the simplest way would possibily be using LCC to do the compiling.
The backend work for LCC is loads less complex than GCC.  Miguel gave
me some preliminary code for this backend.

So, in the lcc module in CVS you will find the code to LCC + the CIL
backend (which DOESN'T emit CIL yet), and some docs/README.mono/etc.
stuff for some background.

If anyone wants to help on this, I can point you in the right
directions of LCC docs you might want to read.
