There isn't any need to a special Winforms "project type". You can
just create a C#/VB.NET/Boo project, set the project output type to
"executable", and add references to System.Windows.Forms. You'll then
be able to write winforms code "by hand",  but with working code
completion, building, debugging, etc.

It would be convenient to have project templates that set up a
skeleton project, but we haven't had much interest in this, and no-one
has contributed them.

Note that there isn't a visual designer in MonoDevelop for Winforms.
