Personally I think you just answered your own question.

For long term development use it seems like it would make sense to
attempt to move Peter's vision from his head, to our hard drives. That
or fix NAnt up for mono use.

1, 4 and 5 all are quick fixes, not long term solutions.

To me, the main advantage I see of using a C# based build tool is
crossplatform. That's something that the existing make tools sorely
lack, because at least, you need a GNUlike makechain (or auto*) to
build, while cygwin provides this easily on windows, there is no real
need to add this heavy dep to our build process.
