I'm only following this thread as a MonoDevelop user and I don't really
understand the issue.

If the problem is only a legal problem, why don't you just go ahead and
create another exception of the GPL for MonoDevelop? As far as I
understand you can relicense your code if you wish to. And if MonoDevelops
contributions are MIT X11 you can integrate their good work so both sides
take revenue from each other. OpenSource software style.

I don't see any legal issues keeping you from doing that, or am I
missunderstanding things?
