The customer currently copies and pastes Objective C and CocoaTouch code snippets into MonoTouch code file in MonoDevelop and converts them line by line.
They would like to be able to right-click on Objective C and CocoaTouch types and have Intellisense suggest Monotouch types that it can map to. The result is that they just click through the highlighted 'typ missing' errors to correct most of these. This can help speed up code conversions.
Bugzilla isn't really the place to track large feature request like this, this really belongs in UserVoice (http://xamarin.uservoice.com).
This would be incredibly hard to fix - we'd need n objective-c parser to understand the context of each symbol. And if we had that, we'd be better off providing some kind of importer, instead of a command for the user to invoke manually on each symbol.
