It depends on how serify you want it of course. You have many monospace fonts
that are more serify than DejaVu Sans Mono without using all the serifs you'd
expect in a completely serif font (Anonymous Pro, Incosolata, etc). Monospace
is pretty much the antithesis of serif, subtle serifs look good at high
resolution on paper, monospace is used on computer screens at low res. Serif
monos usually end up with courrier-like blocky serifs.

And lastly, Verily shows DejaVu Serif could be mono-ified, if someone was
willing to pour some energy in it (http://delubrum.org/)
