I'll comment on what I know in-line.

I don't know when it was introduced (I've been using the bleeding-edge
Git builds for too long now) but in the Dev tree then there are
formatting rules under Edit > Default Policies, then Source Code > Code

Mike has done a great job with extending it to be more powerful, and
I've been trying my own fixes in my own branch:)

Which completion list tokens? If I type "Ob" and hit Enter then I
already get "Object" auto-completed. If you mean templates (like
Console.Write) then I've got a re-opened 'bug' ticket about it at

What kind of improvements? MD uses GTK, which can have multiple
different themes. On Windows then you'd normally choose something like
Wimp (IIRC) for the theme to look like native Windows. Personally, I
prefer the MD look over VS.Net, but a bit of Eclipse flexibility
wouldn't harm :)
