I don't know why updates are related to what I said.
Anyway, thinking on the new Addin structure, I beleive that contributing 
to the MonoDevelop core should be now not very necessary, but yes on the 
Addins, above all with the MonoDevelop IDE Addin. So my question is now: 
can the addins be compiled individually with MonoDevelop?

If not, why?
If yes, my suggestion now should be to provide a MonoDevelop 
(SVN-Enabled) Solution for each Addin released with MonoDevelop.

Or perhaps I am wondering dumb things. Just let me know please.
