[MonoDevelop] Writing a codegen addin - how to start?

I've started playing with MonoDevelop recently, and I'd be quite interested
in writing an add-in for codegen (similar to the "Custom Tool" functionality
in VS). Any pointers on how to start writing such an add-in?

For detail, I'm hoping to add some "protocol buffers" support; the user adds
a ".proto" file (format defined by Google), and the add-in would (on demand,
or when editing+saving the .proto) write the appropriate C#. Like below, but
in MonoDevelop. Is there a suitable extension-point for this?
