[MonoDevelop] Isolate project directory from build products directory

Is it somehow possible to specify the path for the bin directory under
a different root?

More precisely, I would like to create my projects in e.g. the ~/Mono
directory, and have the build products (intermediate as well as final)
created in e.g. ~/MonoBuildProducts.

So when creating a new app MyApp under ~/Mono/MyApp, I'd like the
build directory to be located at ~/MonoBuilsProducts/MyApp/bin.

The preferred approach would be fully automatic, but it would already
help if I could somehow tell MonoDevelop to use that directory as

The main advantage of such approach provides for a clean directory for
backup purposes, so that reproducable bits would not be backed up. One
could then even consider to use a ~/DropBox/Mono folder and have all
sources backud up without feeding reproducable stuff into DropBox.

The idea stems from Apples XCode which provides both a 'Build Products
Path' and a 'Intermediate Build Files Path' setting.

Maybe there are some internal settings that can be setup to achieve
this result.
