This is not likely going to happen any time soon;  The range of features
supported by Mono today is much larger than MonoDevelop, and the amount
of features that go into Mono make it hard for MonoDevelop to keep up,
specially with the current team size.

One option is to grow the MonoDevelop team, am open to hear ideas about
how to do this.
