   No. I did not want to touch driver.cs because of the reason that
"/doc" would be provided for the standard XML-doc style as in MS .Net

   However, the Documentation part would be standard. The only
extension that I need is that I want raw string and not XMLElement.

   As such, my patch "is" complete in itself. To get XMLElement for
"/doc", just call "CreateComment" on the document collected.

   Already said - I need raw comments, with "///" and "/**" included.

   The reason is "/doc" is a standard switch thought about being
provided in mcs as well. My patch provides basic infrastructure to it.
Only that it does not generate and XML-file or validate or create any

   The patch definitely has a use -- as said above.
