Argh ! .. did someone think ilnative is a native compiler 
for IL !... (I have made that mistake when I saw it first ..)

We might (or need to) include some of them in the pnet-dev
packages we will be shipping ... eg csdoc2test can be used 
for autogenerating CSUnit test cases, Object Modelling tools
can be used for generating csdoc XML files (because XML files
can be read and modified more easily than C#) and stubs generated 
from these files ...

I was going to redo it as 'pinvokecheck' , for checking whether
all the pinvoke funcs in an image are in the corresponding dynlib.
(It's something I keep forgetting ... ;-)

Will remove ilcheck and replace it with pinvokecheck , if that's
Ok with you .. But that will be tomorrow ;-)
