I don't know if it is wise, but I think a combination of Monodevelop and
Stetic would be great. Personally I don't like Glade that much, and if I
were a newbie it would be more easy with a single application than 2-5
different applications.

Well - at some point Stetic will be more mature and ready for the
masses, so in my opinion: go ahead :-)

Keep it simple for at start.

Seems like a nice project and I would be happy to help you out
testing your tutorial.
