It's conceivable that those who know what a C# editor should have
are the ones who program primarily in C#.
Besides, Eclipse is written in Java, which means I can't get it to
perform decently on a comp with two dual-core CPU's and 8GB of RAM.
MonoDevelop otoh works very nicely on my ancient laptop with one
cpu and 512MB's of RAM.
I may be spoiled, being used to lightweight editors like jed/vim,
and using pure-C ide's (Geany) whenever something's too complex to
overview in the really fast editors, but I definitely feel that a
user-application should respond immediately, not after 0.2 seconds.

If a wheel doesn't roll that well, it's a good idea to design a
new one ;-)
