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

Too bad Eclipse crawls on my dual 2.0 G5...although it would be worlds
better than nothing.

I know the hardcore out there will do their Mono work in vi or somesuch,
but I find working in a full-on IDE like VS.NET that has code completion
hints, formatting, integrated visual debugger, etc to be *MUCH* faster.

I have avoided doing anything with Mono on my Mac because of the lack of
a good IDE.
