[Mono-dev] MSBuild target for Mono

I was hoping VS would also pick up the intelisense from the mono libraries, 
only showing the implemente methods, but it continues to display the 
intelisense for the ms libraries. Do you also know of any trick to make VS 
show intelisense from the metadata of the mono libraries?

Best regards,
Gustavo Guerra
