[Mono-dev] Version metadata - reflection?

In Visual Studio, you right-click a project, properties, application, assembly information, and set the version, which corresponds to AssemblyVersion and AssemblyFileVersion in AssemblyInfo.cs, and it can be detected at runtime via System.Reflection.Assembly.GetEntryAssembly().GetName().Version.

However, in Xamarin Studio or MonoDevelop, you right-click a project, options, main settings, and set version... It doesn't change AssemblyInfo.cs. Instead, it modifies the csproj.  I'm not sure how/if this metadata can be accessed at runtime.  Can it?  Or better yet, does Xam Studio and/or Monodevelop have some interface that allows easy editing of AssemblyInfo.cs as VS does?  I can edit the file by double clicking it and editing text manually, I just wonder if that's what people are intended to do.  (I am surprised to see a completely separate and completely analogous and confusing redundant project "Version" metadata setting which is unrelated to the version inside AssemblyInfo.cs).
