Thanks for the respons Atsushi.

The goal was to remove all Windows dependencies and fully port it but
unfortunately those who have worked on it lack the .NET skills and
necessary motivations to accomplish this task, hence why I'm asking
here.  It would be a great showcase for Mono, and a bit of a steal to
have FreeTrain to move to Mono from .NET.
