[MonoDevelop] Moving to MonoDevelop

Hi All,

I'm trying to switch from VS2008 to MonoDevelop as the primary project
format for NUnit.
Here are a few issues I'm running into. Any help is appreciated.

1. The NUnit add-in gets in the way when I'm working on a new version
of NUnit. I know
I can remove it, but I'd like to use it on other projects. Can it be
disabled at the
solution level?

2. I have a bit of code like this...

#if !MONO
   // code that won't compile under Mono

The MONO define is set by my NAnt build and is of course never true
under VS. With
MD, I'd like to switch between .NET and Mono CLRs on Windows and have some
automatic definition I can rely on. Is that possible?

PS: Ideally anything that can compile under .NET should compile under Mono. I
only use MONO and MSNET defines as a workaround, not in released code, but
it helps me to be able to move ahead without waiting for a new release.
