I don't think it does right now, although it has been a while since I 
looked at it.
It may have been added after the version of SharpDevelop we started with.

There are several options:
1. someone adds support to the existing parser
 - missing 2.0 support, doc comments, probably other things
2. someone imports the SharpDevelop 2.0 parser
- uses generics, needs other changes (Dom, etc.), has tests?
3. somehow reuse the gmcs parser
- significantly different, not really meant to be used in an IDE

None of which is a small task, and each have their own advantages and 
If it was up to me, I would choose option 2.  But this depends very much 
on what the 1.0 plan is,
and when generics will be acceptable, which I haven't been following.

I dont think so.
