Yay !! ... 

I still have a few unrelated bugs (hopefully) like incorrect boxing 
of enum members , use of `this` as a variable in a struct etc ..

It would be worth remembering that I started hacking on cscc seriously
on 28th last month .... So it's not really my hard work, I just polished
off a few rough edges .. and TreeCC ROCKS !

Now that it works , let's make it work better ?  Is it time to start 
-O3 work ? ... I don't think *I* want to see a peephole optimiser from 
inside .. :-)

Also now that the compiler works , let's get busy on the libraries ...
It should be easy to find bugs .... And ECMA compat by new year ... I'm
postponing my "This Year In DotGNU" article to include that ;-)
