Im really ignorant at these things and this may be plain impossible or
just stupid, but to me seems more plausible to build hidden qt
window/controls and using QGraphicsView and related stuff to capture
and show the result inside monodevelop. Also, in case this approach is
possible or makes sense, it will be platform-agnostic becouse it
relays just in qt funcionality.

Again, excuse me if this is just plain nonsense. Im talking about
things I dont know or understand at all. It just seems plausible given
the kind of things the plasma guys do (ie plasmoids in general and
akregator showing part of the desktop (tray icons) in a msgbox to hint
the user into the notify icon...).
