I would like to know the answer to this too (except that in my case I need
to perform coordinated code generation based on multiple input files at the
same time.) However, last time I asked about developing a plugin for
Monodevelop, I got no answer. Either the developers are not here, or they
don't want people developing plugins for their IDE!
