Even though I hadn't added any template expansions, a quick verifying-compilation failed because Antlr added the following statements to the source file that it generated:

Beware: the StringTemplate4 library is released and (as far as i know) 
running, whereas Antlr4 is still under development.
You can use StringTemplate4 with Antlr3 with a few modifications to your 
code: http://www.antlr.org/wiki/display/ST4/Differences+between+v3+and+v4

It seems to me that you got confused between StringTemplate4 and Antlr4.
I do not use the C# target, but according to the doc of ST4, it works 
with C#.

Hope this helps.
