[IronPython] Execution state?

Hi Michael,

Much of the state of IronPython engine execution is isolated, however not everything is so in some cases the multiple instances of IronPython engine can influence each other, however those cases should go away over time.

Subject: [IronPython] Execution state?

I have a question about the execution state for IronPython.

Does the engine instance hold the intermediate results?

Can I have 2 engine instances for example and they have independent
definitions, local variables, etc?  Or are all changes affected through an
engine global to the current VM?

To restate, if I wanted to have 2 windows that both execute IronPython what
do I need to do to keep their results isolated from each other?  What do I
need to do to let them share results?

Can I execute IronPython code on 2 threads using the same or different
engine objects?
