For newcomers to the discussion, it should be pointed out that
IronPython would only leak over time in a 1.1 CLR when

a) used interactively
b) used in a program that performs exec / eval

Long-running programs that don't exec/eval would not be building
new code, and therefore wouldn't leak memory.
