We need a way to quickly convert a .net project to monotouch and or android.

The Monotouch project has specific requirements/guid that. I should be able to right click on any library project, and say create a MonoTouch project that is identical.
Same for our other projects.

This has been on the TODO list forever: http://monodevelop.com/Developers/Tasks/Project_Model/Project_Model_Improvements#_task_a_Projects.ProjectTypeConverter

The main problem is figuring out a good UX.
