Dogfooding would be great.

We will switch to Mono Develop as the default script editor in Unity  
this summer on Mac OS X.
So I'll make sure our programmers who are using Mac OS X will start  
using MonoDevelop, and we'll file bugs.

The menu item is kind of taking the wind out of my sails though. It's  
just really difficult to make the mental switch for all the hotkeys  
like cmd-c / ctrl-c for copy paste etc. So the faster this one gets  
fixed, the faster / easier I can convince people to use Mono Develop  
instead of what ever text editor they are using now.
