Actually, MonoDevelop as a whole is released under the GPL, but large
portions of the code base are licensed as MIT X11.  You can look at the
actual source code files to determine this.  It appears that all new
development is being released as MIT X11 and the old SharpDevelop code
base is what is licensed GPL.  Though I may not be entirely correct in
my interpretation.

The source code for the DockToolbar component I mentioned is all tagged
as MIT X11.
