Wow! This is such great news!!

As for running Owin applications with Unix HTTP servers, I've
developed Fos<http://github.com/mzabani/Fos> on
a very permissive license and a focus on good documentation and running
with Mono on *nix. I would very much love getting contributions on this,
because my spare time is running lower these days.

Hope it helps,
