 - parser segfaults on complex files
 - cut/copy is slow
+	Rename `Combine' to `Solution' everywhere.
+	Add `Add Item', `Add new Item' to Solution so we can add new file types.
+`New Project', `New file' dialog box redesign
+	Given that today, and for the near few months we wont support other
+	things other than C# well, I suggest that instead of having a box on the
+	left listing tons of languages we dont support, we move to:
+		Console Apps
+		GUI apps.
+		Web-based apps.	
+		Other kind of apps.
+	The right hand side could contains an XD2-like control center, with more
+	space or more options instead of an icon list, something like this:
+		Main Applications
+		-----------------
+		Gtk#      Gnome
+		Subclasses
+		----------
+		Window	  DrawingArea
+WebForms Support
+	Add support for creating ASP.NET based webforms, which means:
+		* Add a template.
+		* When adding a new `item' of type .aspx, also create by default
+		  a item.aspx.cs for the code-behind code (the user can choose to
+		  leave it empty).
+		* Add a Makefile to build this thing?
+WebServices support
+	Add `Add Web Reference' support to the IDE in the Solutions tab.
+	Create a mini-web browser to browse arbitrary URLS, and find any .wsdl documents on it
+	Import WSDL documents, generate the url.wsdl file.
+	Add this to the Makefile
+Building code
+	I have no idea (miguel) how the code is being built, but maybe whatever information
+	we have should be turned into a Makefile.  This has the advantage that anyone
+	can build without MonoDevelop our solutions (think of people doing deployments on 
+	a web page: they could just copy the directory, and type `make install').
+	Cute other option: support `make dist', to create a package, generate our own
+	`configure' file (does not need to be automake-based, look at Nemerle's very cute
+	shell-based system).
+	Further thought: in the past autoconf made sense to detect system-op-isms, today
+	it is mostly used to detect packages installed and do macro expansion;   The detection
+	has been already taken care of with `pkg-config' (look at nemerle's nice setup).
+Remove the /recurse *.cs option
+	When calling mcs, it should do this through the Makefile, not through calling mcs /recurse
+	or anything like that, since it leads to errors (also the Makefile has the advantages
+	described before)
 - should not be enabled unless known mimetype
