I'm not quite sure I understand where you see us fit in the Chrome project. 
Doing compiler related things is - obviously - out of the question. So this 
leaves beta-testing and writing some class libraries. IOW: The fun part (as I 
see it) is already taken, which leaves the non-fun but necessary parts.

BTW: I wasn't aware of the fact that you give your command line edition away for

I did not know that Chrome is so closely bundeled with Mono - but OTOH why 
doesn't mono ship with Chrome if it is considered to be the standard object 
pascal compiler for Mono? Or did I miss something here? Is there/Will there be a 
Chrome mode available in MonoDelevelop?
