No. At the moment there existing GTK# (http://gtk-sharp.sourceforge.net/) 
and Qt# (http://qtcsharp.sourceforge.net/). And it is possible to create 
more bindings to other Desktop-Environments.
One of the visions behind mono/.net is, that you can use all API-functions 
with the .net-languages, which you can use with C/C++.

>Will it be possible to have multiple versions of Windows.Forms,
>so that some ambitions KDE user could write a QtSharp version?

Yes, it is possible.
You need only the people, who creates this library.
Look at http://www.go-mono.org/winforms.html
One of the visions of the mono-team is, to create beside Windows-Forms based 
on Gtk# (on Linux),  Windows-Forms based on Cocoa (on MacOS) and 
Windows-Forms based on the Win32-API (on Win32).
