[Mono-dev] GSoC 2013 MonoDoc Editor

I don't think WinForms is currently useable in Mono, so for Linux and
(presently more important) MacOSX, it would not work.

Trying to abstract the toolkit and have different backends would be
more effort than GSoC would allow, and put a maintenance burden that
would not pay for itself thereafter.
The same would come if trying to fix enough of Mono's WinForms
implementation inside the scope of this GSoC project.

Also GTK# is easier to use than WinForms when targeting localizable
UIs, as it has auto-adjustable layouts at its roots.
