I feel your pain... well, almost. Never tried Xamarin, but the regular signing process also felt like a pain to me.
Long long ago... in 2008. It was complicated and manual... but at least you knew that if you understood the process and remembered the steps you'd be fine.

I'd create a certificate, setup a provisioning profile on the dev portal, add devices on the portal and then to the profile, download the profile and install it via xcode or the keychain access. Of course i'd have to add the profile to the device as well.

I knew if i messed up it wouldn't work, but with a bit of practice you can get it right.
I tried building iOS again recently and with xcode 'managing' everything, I have absolutely no control (or that's how it feels like), and no clue what's going wrong if something goes wrong.

It's worse when you have to set up a CI server and people on the team, equally clueless, end up tampering the provisioning profiles!

Sorry for the rant, your post just brought back very bad memories.
