Getting Mono and MySQL to play together politely

Actually, Microsoft has open sourced the .Net CLR in the form of a project called Rotor.

Also, Mono != Microsoft and C# is an ECMA language that is not patented, so you might want to check your facts again. The fact is that the only parts of Mono that _might_ have a patent issue are ASP.NET, ADO.NET or Windows.Forms.
