We have been already working with that. I had a quick&dirty demo
along with me in Ubuntu Developer Summit Mointain View which was hacked
by Johan in insanely short time and was not any near production quality
So it wasn't ready for anything but just showing that Hildon Desktop
runs on Desktop
with some hacking and it can be done. However, this thing is going to be
based on the new
Hildon Desktop our guys are working on (Johan, Lucas, Moises), it is not
trunk version but in branches and though it is not very mature yet. The
Hildon Desktop is the package formerly named as maemo-af-desktop, we
decided to rename it for consistency one day.
But that is intended to become the version which is gong to work in 
addition to Nokia devices also on desktop Linux such as 
Ubuntu/Debian/yourdistrogoeshere etc.

If you want to help, you might want to look to stage's branches, branch
titled "new_hildon_desktop". If you want send patches for it, feel free
to send them
to us.
