[Gtk-sharp-list] Good GTK# charting library, fully integrate with Monodevelop

In case the OP or any readers are still interested, I've now got a first
pass at the Gtk# backend for Florence implemented. It's only tested on
Windows at this point, and it's got one relatively major bug that I can't
figure out, but of the examples I work with (adapted from the original
NPlot demo) whatever's going on only seems to affect the case where there
are two linked plots, which seems like a somewhat low-priority case.  I
think it's usable as is.

Thanks for chiming in Hywel, I adapted your work on NPlot to get my Gtk#
backend up.  It helped a lot, as I only have minimal Gtk# experience.
