[MonoDevelop] add-in pre build event

I'm trying to implement a mono develop add-in for a package manager
which will restore packages on before a build.

I've had a look at:


But am struggling to identify the extension point to use to get a pre
build event.

Does anyone know what extension point I need and also does anyone know
of an add-in which hooks the pre-build to perform an action, that I
can use as an example.

I already looked at the nuget addin but that doesn't yet do a restore
in a pre build hook. This is going to be a problem for nuget in the
future because the recommended way of using nuget is to run the
restore prebuild in a IDE hook, rather then the old
MSBuild-Integrated package restore. People are going to start
complaining that their visual studio solutions setup for automatic
package restore don't work in Mono Develop. However that is an aside
and is a problem for another day.
