I have asked Norbert Bollow of the DotGNU project if he is interested. I
hope to hear word back from him within a day or two. From my personal
dealings with him, I think he would be a great freedom-fighter who is
able to connect with people from different backgrounds and philosophies.
He has good business sense, IMO, and is at least willing to try things
to see what doesn't work.
