Does anybody care about mono on DF?

Ever since the version of Mono in ports was upgraded to version 4.x, 
it's been a bit of a nightmare for me.  It's extremely unstable when 
it's host machine is under contention, such as we see in the pkgbox64 

A log like this happened twice in two days:

It's not just mono, but any port that is written in c-sharp (or whatever 
Mono really is) crashes randomly with these sigaborts.

It's such a pain, I'm seriously considering removing Mono from the 
dports tree, along with it's ~48 ports that depend on it.  If somebody 
is using mono and/or cares about it, I suggest they "adopt" it and fix 
it permanently.  Zrj has spent a lot of time on it as well.

I suspect that nobody is using it and nobody will miss it if we go with 
the nuclear option, but I'm posting this just in case that assumption is
