Looking at it now. Looks OK... except for... it needs mono...

What's the current feeling towards mono on the list? Is it still
a poison challice?

I'd prefer to go with a client that doesn't use mono, if available,
but I realise that Sparkleshare is a GNOME project and the GNOME
folk are all in with mono in a big way.

What other (maybe lesser) alternatives are there - I like the git
backend. Also, I'd like something that has an Android client as well...
