That's interesting. Since the production CompilationUnit can derive the
empty string, the entire source file could be something "outside that
production" and could include text in some other language virtually
identical to Java but with particular interesting extensions, such as AOP
or delegates. If I understand your statement, such a source file is still
a valid Java(TM) Programming Language compilation unit.
Do I have that right?
