[Ironruby-core] Visual Ruby / Ruby in Steel — what's up?

When I work with XAML I use Blend instead of VS, so I'm already used to
switch tools and use the best one for each thing. I would suggest that if
that's feasable (e.g. you already have a Blend license or are willing to
spend money in one).
I think some support for basic stuff would come handy (like the one from
VS), but I think that would be a low priority for RubyMine.
