I wonder if someone in this list has any experience in fund-raising
for open-source projects... well I´m certain there is someone.

Being Ubuntu such a popular distro, and being .NET such a popular
framework, "mono for Ubuntu" could perhaps make some company think of
sparing some bucks for it, for its own user, or for the "publicity"
value of it.

I mean, "some hundreds man-hours" account to a few thousand dollars,
maybe it could be a justifiable effort for Google Summer of Code,
Canonical itself, or one of these new "crowdsourcing" portals.

well, just my $0.015
