Well, this is exactly how things worked back in '92 when Delphi 1.0 has
been launched by Borland. Many of the class hierarchy stuff was inspired
from the layout of VCL (Visual Component Library); I'm surprised that
even the class/property/event naming conventions are Delphi/C++Builder
alike, funny :)

Anyway it's great to know that Mono staff is working on an
IDE-alike-tool which hopefully will bring .NET/RAD to Linux.
