I'm not sure what you mean. You can have whatever opinions of various
languages you like. The fact is that beagle is written in c#, thus
requiring mono. 

Can you rewrite something similar to beagle in another language? Of
course you can, but thats a completely different proposition than adding
"beagle without mono". For one, it would require multiple man years of
work (beagle has seen a lot of work by many people already).
