[Mono-list] APT-RPM for Mono?

I've recently fallen in love with APT-RPM for RedHat 8.0, which is a great
method of distributing RPMS, both for end users and for developers. (See
http://apt.freshrpms.net for some examples).

Providing RPMS for APT is as simple as generating an index for a directory
full of RPMS (by running some utility to analyze dependencies).

Would it be possible for anyone to distribute Mono RPMS this way? Can anyone
establish such a repository on www.go-mono.com or somewhere else?

It would also be great if you could provide daily (or weekly) mono builds in
RPM format for the APT repository ("unstable" section or sth).

Mono is such a big piece of technology now, that I think it would be helpful
if there were many smaller RPMs available instead of just a big one. Can
anyone provide me with *.spec files used to generate current RPMS? I'd like
to try to check the feasibility of splitting mono.rpm into many smaller RPMS
and distributing them via APT.
