There is a standalone Winforms designer for Mono, in the mwf-designer
modules in SVN. The author, Ivan N Zlatev, is actively working on it.

It's unlikely to be integrated into MD soon -- Ivan tried, but ran
into some big problems integrating GTK# and MWF, particularly the X11
drag-and-drop. It's not a priority of the Core MD team, as we already
have a graphical designer for GTK#. You are of course welcome to have
a go at integrating it :)
