[Mono-dev] Mono Develop native menus on Mac OS X

That would be a great idea.  I use MonoDevelop primarily on Linux, but I will also have to release Mac versions of our software.  Currently, Mac monodevelop is a bit flaky.  Nothing major (beyond what was intentionally removed), but it is very annoying at times.
Also, it looks like the version control add-in should be included in the MAc version.  It works fine - you just currently have to trick it into working by creating symbolic links from fake libapr*.so and libsvn*.so files to libapr*.dylib and libsvn*.dylib.

Funny you would mention this, we were just discussing that at lunch
today, and we want to make this happen.

My major concern is not as much the menu itself, but any other bugs that
we might not be aware of in MonoDevelop/Mac, since none of us use a Mac
as our main system.   We only hear reports through the grapevines and
would like to have more actionable data on what might be broken on MD.

Maybe we should get a Mac for someone in the MonoDevelop team as their
main machine to make sure that all of these issues get fixed.
