[antlr-interest] Should I contribute working example code for CSharp3 target?

Thanks to the generous help from this list, I seem to have got over the worst of the learning curve for the Antlr C# target. I've also started to notice the logic in how the C# target deviates from the Java target, so I don't think I'll have to pester the list with stupid questions quite so much going forward. The C# target part of the learning curve has been for me much more difficult than the Antr learning curve itself, mostly because there is a lot of broken or out of date example code for the C# target floating around and it is hard to know where to look for useful examples that do work properly.
Anyhow, I've converted all the "calculator" examples from the first section of The Definitive Guide To Antlr to the CSharp3 target and they all seem to work. If there is interest and if I know how to do it, I would be happy to contribute them to the Antlr community. I'll probably continue to convert more examples as I work my way through the book.
I have to laugh, because for all I know there are up to date examples for all of these and I just don't know where they are!
I'd also be happy to contribute a few paragraphs on how the CSharp3 target grammar files and test harness differ from the Java target. These might be useful to newcomers such as myself since one generally loses "the beginners perspective" over time and thing become obvious that might not be obvious to beginners.
