[IronPython] Iron Python NewB questions . . .

So I've been reading the Iron Python docs plus installed and played
with it a little bit . . . it doesn't look like Iron Python does
quite what I need.
If I have a Python script . . . and I want to access a C# assembly .
. . it looks like I am Golden. (I have yet to actually get it to
work, but it looks like the pieces are there.)
However, if I want to create a Python .NET assembly so I can call an
existing Python class set from C# . . . it looks to me like that
direction doesn't exist.
The other thing that I see here, is that even if I adopt the "Python
on top" philosophy . . . since I cannot create an assembly . . . I
cannot create an executable file and I think also that things like
Py2EXE and PyInstaller won't work either.
That is . . . to run the resulting scripts, I have to install Iron
Python on every target system. (Currently we wrap our application
using PyInstaller and so the customer does not have to have Python
installed to run it.)
Lastly, I'm wondering is any of this is runnable under Unix Mono . .
. I'm guessing the answer is "no".
If I have misunderstood anything here . . . please point me at docs
so I can do more reading.
