It should be possible with some work, provided that you're willing to
get your hands dirty.
The first and largest step is to get Vala working on windows. (
http://live.gnome.org/Vala/ValaOnWindows )
Next, make sure that valac and pkg-config are in your PATH. (
Next, download and build the ValaBinding source from monodevelop.com.
Be sure to install the ValaBinding assembly in your addins directory.
This should get you basic project support.

Finally, for code completion, you'll need libafrodite ( from
http://code.google.com/p/vtg ) installed where MD can see it. VTG and
afrodite are generally built using autotools, so it may/will probably
require cygwin and some configure script hacking.

Hope this helps,
Levi (Tak!)
