No idea, we'd have to ask Lluis (cc'd). FWIW I think the only-relative
namespace handling in Mono.Addins is rather unintuitive and lack of
error reporting of missing dependencies makes it hard to track down

BTW, have you considered contributing your refactoring into the main
MonoDevelop.Refactoring adding?
