The culprit grammar files are the existing examples (e.g. Java 
grammar) supplied with ANTLR. Some of the variables names that are 
generated in the Parser are keywords in C#. This could happen to some 
other language in the future too I would guess....

I am happy for someone to just change the affected shared example 
grammar files (for all languages obviously so we don't have 
incompatible branches - beyong the language option) rather than 
ANTLR. Or I could submit a patch to the examples in the C# dir (who 
keeps tracks of changes in the examples accross languages?).
