I implemented this a while ago, though it might have got broken since.

If you look in IPhoneProjectConfiguration you'll see a SanitizeAppName that gets called when creating new configurations from IPhoneProject, and AppNameIsValid that gets called when compiling the project to emit an warning.

I suppose you could change the warning to an error, in which case you should probably do that for CheckContentNamePermitted and CheckInterfaceDefinitionNamePermitted too.

I tested the original bug report by renaming the application project inside MonoDevelop. Maybe that does not go thru the same validations ?

Possibly, yeah, though I didn't think we changed output names when renaming projects. You should have still hit the warning though.
