This IDE looks good.  Any thoughts about visual designers, either for 
ASP.NET or for forms?  What widget set are you using?  Are you 
considering supporting NAnt as a build tool, as well as MSBUILD?

I would also recommend exposing more aspects of your IDE in your plug-in 
API than just language support.  It'd also might be smart to put out an 
open source "lite" version, and a premium/advanced version, a la eclipse 
& websphere...
