Yes, BUT don't forget that the Winforms designer needs C#, VB.NET, etc
parsers. Also, generating event handlers in files that MD has open is
going to interfere with MD. So while it's *possible*, it's almost
certainly *harder* than integrating it into MD to some extent.

Maybe the Winforms designer could run run in a separate process with
its own toolbox and property grid, and communicate with MD via
