[MonoDevelop] A Project with that name is already in your Project Space

I do it all the time, for projects, classes, etc. But it is a bit
clumsy nowadays.

Right-Click the item in the Project tree, choose "Delete", this just
removes it from the solution or project. Then you right-click the
parent node of the 'not-quite-deleted' object in the tree, and choose
"Display Options", and turn on the "Show All Files" checked menu item,
the "deleted" object will reappear, right-click it again and now
choose "Delete", note that the confirmation dialog asks something
different as it now going to really delete the file/folder. Change
"Display Options/Show All Files" back off to unclutter the tree.

Well I would really prefer something like having two menu actions a
"Remove from project/solution" and a real "Delete", This would also
help with version control, as the first action would probably also put
the item in the "svn:ignore" list, and the second would plain "svn
remove" it.
