Thanks to everyone for their thoughts on unit testing.  There is indeed 
a PyUnit, it's part of the standard Python distribution (under the 
package name unittest).  However, it uses three packages that haven't 
been implemented in IronPython yet - traceback, os and types - and 
modifying it to remove these dependencies looks like more work than 
writing a new (simpler) test framework.

Thanks also to everyone for the thoughts on IDEs.

A question for the development team - I appreciate that it's much too 
early for anything precise, but when do you expect to be able to get a 
1.0 release - in the sense of, will it be years or months from now?
