To build VS2005 projects you need only MSBuild. After some rewrite you
would be able to use xbuild for this.  It will be also possible to write
project file type addin to MonoDevelop for VS2005 files.
I don't think that making code from a scratch for whole new format is
good solution. Problem is that I won't have time for a few months to
update xbuild (MSBuild changed recently in NET 2.0 release) because I'm
finishing high school.
