Feel free to implement a Pascal front-end for Mono :-)

But what development language would you use for that project?

Honestly, a .NET back-end is less useful than e.g. a Java back-end, and 
requires much work in the front-end for assembly compatibility ("uses"). 
Next a new debugger-interface is needed, and a VCL.NET. All in all a 
very new project, that can inherit almost nothing from the current FPC :-(
