The Run/General project options are ignored/meaningless for Mono for Android apps. We should either disable/hide the panel or actually make it work.
1. Create a new project.
2. Click Project > ProjectName Options
3. In the left-hand tree, select the Run > General entry
The General options includes command-line parameters, which aren't supportable in a Mono for Android app, and a Run in external console checkbox, which likewise makes no sense. Can we hide these?
Then there's the Environment Variables section, which is currently ignored.
These could be supported by taking them and translating them into an appropriate `adb shell setprop debug.mono.env` invocation prior to launching the app:

It would actually make more sense to generate an environment file:
Fixed in run-configurations branch. We don't create the environment file though, but the run / general options are now tailored for android apps and provide a way to customise what service / activity is started. There is a BeforeRun option that can be edited manually to invoke a single adb shell command - creating a new enhancement request to be able to handle multiple commands
