Note: our first goal is to get working code written. As Fred Brooks says, "plan to throw the first one away", which means the first few releases will largely be us futzing around trying to figure out the best way to do things. Someone already suggested building on top of MonoDevelop - that's something we'll have to figure out as we go. The point is that we don't want to spend months debating structure and theory; we want to get things moving, then refactor later.
