[Mono-dev] Patches for LINQ to SQL?

Dear list,

I am porting a project that makes use of WCF and LINQ to SQL to Mono.
So far so good. Most of the stuff works or can be made to work. Many
thanks for making that happen!

At this point there are a few LINQ to SQL issues and it seems most
productive to solve them in LINQ to SQL rather than the application
code. In particular I am considering some improvements to sqlmetal.exe
(e.g. --member-attributes does not seem to work, some other stuff) and
adding a few string.* QueryMethods[1].

But since LINQ to SQL is no longer supported and DbLinq is dead, I
wonder if there is any chance of patches being folded back into
Mono. Please advise.
