[MonoDevelop] monodevelop build sys

NANT is too generic, it is like Makefile files without the AutoTools.

Autotools, add predictable targets and dependencies to makefile.

The problem is probably it would be an endless discussion, on what
kind of "structure" would be imposed in nant build files for them to
be useable in MonoDevelop, as project files...

Just adding attach-to-project and run-some-target functionalities,
like Eclipse does for ant files is just not good enough.

I know because I do have ant files in my eclipse projects and I have
to keep things in sync by hand, what isn't nice... The only real
nicety in that integration is the ability to 'debug', even
single-step, ant files.

I didn't experiment with the newer versions of netbeans, that is told
to use ant files AS the project files. But surely they've done
'structuralization'  of the ant files, defining some mandatory
properties and targets...

just to think aloud about the subject,
