Yes, these ideas are listed on the MD tasks page, and would be fine
for GSoC, as long as some set of these features could be combined into
a good proposal: http://monodevelop.com/Developers/Tasks/Packaging

In particular, see the proposal for overhauling the packaging system,
which would really be a prerequisite of any significant work in this
