Ok, I think I understood what you are going to do.

So what you need is, to have public members that are accessible
from your own tool 'mcsdoc', which 1)references to mcs.exe as an
assembly and 2)runs its Main() entrypoint and 3)get results that
contains Documentation, right? The code in your patch looks
actually not necessary for mcs itself.

Otherwise, you must need more patches to get it working (to get
documentation output). At least there should be patch for driver.cs
that handles your documentation support.
