Here's what Mojang should do in my opinion: Release the server part of Minecraft under an open source license. Three clause BSD, GPL, I don't care, just open it up. People don't buy Minecraft because they want the server software, they want the client. You have nothing to lose. At least apologize to the developers who weren't aware of the project's owner. Then pay all future expenses for hosting and developing Bukkit. Make it the official, only server software, the vanilla SMP server can finally be put out of its misery. I'm fairly disgusted by how Mojang has been acting lately. Not fully supporting Bukkit despite it being a major reason anyone still cares for their game, dicking over server owners and mod authors in order to stop a few scummy ones… what happened? Didn't you want to be the good guys at some point?
