[IronPython] IronPython like Jython

What is the timeframe for your product?  At this point, IronPython is not "ready for prime time" -- the official status of the project is [quote] Not finished - IronPython is currently at a pre-alpha stage suitable for experimentation but not for serious development work. [end quote].  It's my impression that the next release could be quite a bit more complete, but there have been no updates to the information on the ironpython.com site since July 28.  (Maybe I should look at Jim H's blog before saying that.)

I have not looked hard at this, but you might be able to use Python for .NET


(this is a few .NET assemblies that -- in essence -- let Python 2.4 code call into the CLR).  Given that there is discussion of how it might be "embedded" in your .NET app, perhaps you could use it instead, if your goal is to let people write Python code to "script" your app.

Unfortunately, I don't think your code would be the same in the two cases.

Good luck...
