It is possible. You can add the node builders implemented in
MonoDevelop.Database to the solution pad. The extension path
is /MonoDevelop/Ide/Pads/ProjectPad. Just add the <NodeBuilder> elements
there. You'll also have to imlpement a new node builder extension for
the Project class which will add the root node of your abstract tree.
