[DotGNU]Warning! Cscc rearrangement in progress!

For those of you who are interested in the cscc compiler,
particularly Marcin and his Java front-end stuff, be warned.

I'm about to pull the "cscc" subdirectory apart in a pretty
massive way, and then put it back together again.

The goal of this is to improve code sharing amongst the
language plugins.  I'm going to extract error handling,
option parsing, pre-processing, and several other things
into a separate "compiler common" library.

Then I'm going to shift the C#-specific parts of the
compiler front-end into a "csharp" sub-directory.
The goal is to eventually have sub-directories for
each language front-end of interest, so it is easier
to maintain the plugin code.

The short of it is: all compiler API's are up for grabs
and may no longer look like what they are today in
about a week's time.  It shouldn't affect the API's
used by the runtime engine, assembler, disassembler,
and the other support programs.

Speak now or forever hold your peace if this will
cause you problems.
