[Mono-osx] Delphi Prism and all those Cocoa bridges

If I count correctly we have three (3) different Cocoa bridges in Mono now.

One is Cocoa#, which is part of Mono and rather incomplete (or so it seemed
to me).

Another is  http://www.monobjc.net/ MonoObjc , which I found very useful but
it isn't part of Mono.

A third one is  http://code.google.com/p/mobjc/ mobjc , which I don't know
much about. Plus I found it too complicated.

Delphi Prism  http://edn.embarcadero.com/article/39017 supports the creation
of Cocoa applications  using Cocoa#.

The most inconvenient part about writing Cocoa applications using Mono is
the build process, I think. Visual Studio doesn't support building such
applications, and neither do Xcode or MonoDevelop. But Visual Studio does
with Delphi Prism (which I haven't tried but have heard good things about).

Can something be done about this on Novell's side? Would it be remotely
possible to unite the three different projects under one banner and make
them part of Mono? And what about official support in MonoDevelop or some
module for Xcode?

I'd pay a few hundred euros for a solution. Maybe a few others want to join
and we could offer a bounty?
