Hey Brian, it's Brian:

That is pretty interesting. And thanks for not cursing ;)

I always wondered about other client side implementations of Python and
where they stand. Wether it be Gestalt, Silverlight, MozPython,  some
Mozilla attempts...

Speaking of Mozilla, Ian posted a while back this article
http://blog.ianbicking.org/2010/03/10/joining-mozilla/ where someone
comments, "Congratulations, Ian! Now I can see Python in the browser
happening :)"

Not sure if that is a joke or not; however, I think the IronPython way may
be the only real way besides building your own browser plugin (which I have
done btw and it was a real pain and was only suitable for demonstration and
for those who do not mind if someone else erases your hard drive).
