"null" is a keyword in C#. There is no such thing like a null constant.

Anyway, if you can't stand the current C# specification, don't hesitate
to modify your own copy of gmcs, but don't touch System.Object or any 
other public API. This will assure that your assemblies are still
working on MS.NET and on other people's mono installation.

Good luck.
