Mike Kr├╝ger <address@hidden> has such a development
project, it's called SharpDevelop.  I would encourage you to
hook up with him.

SharpDevelop can't officially become part of DotGNU yet because
pnet is not quite mature enough yet to allow us to use
SharpDevelop without any dependencies on Microsoft's proprietary

This is yet another reason to move forward as quickly as
possible in pnet and pnetlib development.

Agreed.  And as a matter of fact, I think that our goal should
be to make our IDE better than Microsoft's.

I think it's a good name, but "SharpDevelop" is even better.
