Once upon a time (I forget where) you had suggested adding a csc script
which would always refer to the most recent version of the language (as
making `mcs` use the .NET 2.0 profile broke too much code).
So the interactive shell should be csci. :-)
Which has the added benefit that there are only 834,000 matches on
Google, unlike csi...
