Thanks Kenneth for the tips, I was able to start move forward with the
reading and writing of the plist and get MonoDevelop to add it to the
app bundle.

However I soon realised that I had overlooked the fact that the plist
was an array of dictionaries! So please everyone ignore the code in the
Initialize() function in my example - I've got to get my head round the
use of arrays as well and how to read and write the plist!!.
