I have been busy 'cloning' something RAC-like with ASP.NET MVC / JQuery 
and nHibernate.

However, it's not quite finished yet.
Adding it to github would just be a licensing question,
as the final result would be worth several weeks/months of work.

OpenSource if fine for me, I'm just not too much a fan of GPL.
Therefore I'd propose dual licensing:
Something like AGPL for free, MIT for $$$

The payment methods that are already integrated are PayPal and Google 
I'm still working on the escrow system however, as that is the one thing 
that should really work ;-))

Integrating an additional Google/PayPal-free commercial credit-card 
system via one of the bigger providers of that would then be the next 
thing on my wishlist.

I would also need some people to sign up for doing the paid work that 
would be put there.
Not that I couldn't add some credible fake profiles, but it wouldn't 
make too much sense :-))

Also, I'm still in need of a good name for such a site :-))
