[MonoDevelop] Gnome and Gtk project templates

What if someone wanted to create a cross-platform GUI using GTK#?   
  When I say cross-platofrm, I mean Win32, Linux, and anything else gtk# will run on.  Somethings do not work on Win32.
  Could there be a gtk# template for this?

You may be on to something. As you may know I have project templates
for Gtk# and Glade# applications that ship with the Gtk# Installer for
.NET Framework SDK. These are installed and configured for the user if
the installation routine detects the presence of VS 2003 on the host
system. My templates are very much inspired by some of the concept you
would see on Microsoft MFC applications.

I realize that not all applications need such pattern but I wonder how
many desktop applications (statistically speaking), have some common
denominators like a menu and toolbar. Speaking of menus, I would go out
on a limb here and say that if there will be a menu, there is a good
chance that it would sport choices for Quit and an About Dialog. If
there is some agreement with that statement, one could see having that
Main Frame class file having at least the most basic facilities for a
menu that has File->Exit and Help->About.
