[IronPython] NUnit with IronPython

IronPython mangles names. For example:

def method():
    return 1


public static object method$f0()

The test_prefix would get therefore preserved so on a second thought, this may work, provided that nunit executes public static methods and doesn't require specific return value. Ours is always "object" in this case.

Does this mean that IronPython will emit methods, but their names will be mangled, or that it simply won't produce anything that can be effectively used from outside?
