[Mono-osx] Use of Eclipse as a .NET IDE

People are discussing a lot about MonoDevelop and its so slow
progress to MacOSX. Perhaps resources would be better spent creating
a project to develop a C#/.NET Eclipse plugin to make C#/.NET/Mono a
first class citizen along side the JDT (Java Development Toolkit) on
Eclipse is already an excellent Java IDE and a very large amount of
industry support is now behind it. There is already one C# plugin
that i am aware of (the Improve plugin) but that does not appear to
be under active development.
The existing IDE framework and plugin system gives you a lot before
you have started so surely a C# aware editor and build system would
not be hard to create? Also surely a debugger could be incorporated
into the system as well.
The only problem I can see would be the use of the SWT toolkit in
Eclipse when you want to do .NET GUI development. Perhaps someone has
ideas on this topic?
Does anyone know if such a C#/.NEt project is underway for Eclipse?
