[MonoDevelop] Minor change from a newbie: C#3 syntax highlighting

G'day - I'm new here, having just gotten help from some splendid people 
on #mono and #monodevelop to get my Mono and MD going on my Kubuntu 8.04 
system.  First thing I noticed was that C#'s syntax highlighting is 
missing a few valid keywords, so I found the appropriate syntax 
highlighting file and made a change, and I've got a diff here.

The changed file is 
<main/src/core/Mono.Texteditor/SyntaxModes/CSharpSyntaxMode.xml>.  I'm 
not sure if it's possible to attach diffs on this mailing list (it's not 
on most Mailman lists, but of course most of them aren't for open source 
development) so I'll hang on to the svn diff patch file and someone can 
volunteer to accept it by mail if they like.

I realise the keywords are specific to C#3, which is not the default in 
MD (why is that?) so maybe a decision has already been made not to 
include them until some kind of version-specific highlighting system is 
developed.  But if that's not the case, I'm happy to help...
