Hello Sharique.

Something like that is what I've been thinking with MonoHotDraw [1].
After talking with some people in the #monosoc channel, I came to the
conclusion that the best way would be to port MonoHotDraw to run on
the top of Moonlight (currently It runs over Gtk#/Cario).

I'm planing to submit two proposals for GSoC. One is a Class Designer
for MonoDevelop (actually, this one is already submmited, if you are a
mentor, you could start making comments and suggestions). The other
one is for make some improvements to Lunar Eclipse, the XAML editor.
In both cases my plan is to build a reusable framework for writing
graphical editors that use structured graphics. There are plenty of
cool stuff that could be made with a framework such that:

   * A Class Designer for MonoDevelop.
   * A DataBase Graphical Desginer for MonoDevelop
   * A Dia replacement with all the cool features that Moonlight can offer.
   * An UML Editor (Actually, the MonoHotDraw project has been
written as a part o the MonoUML project)
   * A Mind map editor. How could would be a mind map editor for
tomboy. Or a moonlight collaborative mind map editor to be used inside
a wiki engine.
   * Improvements to Lunar eclipse.
