[IronPython] Installing IP with the new CTP

Hi Iain,

The threading issue... It seems that STAThred is what works for most uses so in the next release we are making IronPython STA by default. We are also adding a command line parameter -X:MTA that will run the script / interactive prompt on MTAThread thread.

Hope this helps

Hi Martin

Thank you for your update on the tutorial, good news. I can get by without
animations for now - but do you know a solution for the threading problem in
the new environment? I can only do more substantial work by running from
scripts rather than interactively!

It's the eventually deliverable IP/WinFX combination that I'm interested in;
so I'd rather have something with shelf life despite the occasional
roadblock than revert to an obsolescent configuration of system software -
up to a point at least.
