As requested in http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9413301/catching-resource-filename-errors-at-compile-time, MonoDevelop could generate a class of constants for all the bundle resource IDs, which would provide code completion and catch some errors at compile time.

This isn't likely to happen anytime soon as Asset Catalogs and everything else make this even more complicated.
