I haven't looked at Susan's plugin, so I don't know how it's  
architected (my own uses of Mono don't require a lot of C#  
development in XCode). The FSF's opinion on GPL plugins for non-free  
applications may be of interest:


We're currently going through a GPL->LGPL relicensing effort with  
Perian for this reason (among others).
