[MonoDevelop] Feature request - Solution panel auto-navigation

I would second this. It's something that really annoys me when I'm
using monodevelop because I don't tend to navigate using the solution

I normally prefer to keep the solution explorer at some point I'm
currently looking at, then use ctrl-clicking on items or going to a
type by typing it's name in, then closing the files when I'm done.
Because of the way that monodevelop automatically navigates to the
file, I find myself collapsing folders in the tree quite a lot.

I'd prefer either eclipse's way where you can toggle the behaviour on
or off, or a shortcut to show the current file in the solution
explorer when I want to find it like resharper.
