I have already sent in a patch to the improve guys to enable Eclipse to
support CSCC's syntax ... Now it's just a matter of their replying ...
(viz CsccCsharpCompilerAction::buildCommand() and CsccCsharpCompilerAction::

I don't have an Eclipse installation to test it out for real ... because
I don't want to install Sun JDK 1.4 ... 

A cursory look revealed that the ecsharp IDE seems "half-baked" .. The
compiler seems to focus on single file compilation... Which just won't
do for large projects ...
