I have looked a bit at fixing this issue, but it seems that the C# parser
does not support doc comments at the moment. Is this true or am I missing
something. I looked in the cs.ATG file. On another note, how do we switch to
supporting .NET 2.0. Can this parser be autogenerated from some mono code?
