Consistency isn't foolish. Even if this isn't fixed now I'll reorder them when doing the split for the runtimes.

Well, this time you shouldn't have followed the majority. The problem is that Antlr4.Runtime.dll can't be used in concurrency with Antlr3.Runtime.dll due to namespace clashes. Well, users can use assembly aliases to solve that problem but it could be done without user interaction. And yes, I truly believe that someday ANLTR 3 and ANTLR 4 end up being used together in some project.
