[MonoDevelop] Navigate to dialog item filter

The old algorithm is a bit slower, but it gives better search results.
For example, try looking for 'ccommand'. The list you get using the old
algorithm makes much more sense to me than what you get in the new one.

Also, the new algorithm can't handle some queries. For example, if I try
to look for CustomCommandCollection using the strings 'comcoll',
'cuscoll' or even 'commandcollection' I don't get any result.

Those issues should be fixed before switching to the new algorithm.
