[IronPython] IronPython and Visual Studio --

An area where IronPython could be especially useful, I think, would be in
making dynamic working with the IDE.  In Visual Foxpro, with a dialog open,
from the Command Window I can issue:

loForm = aArray[1]
loForm.height = loForm.height + 50 && makes it 50 pixels higher, etc.

Making Python the scripting language for the IDE, so that it became dynamic,
would put Python in front of many more .Net developers that simply hoping
they adopt it because it's a great language (which of course it is <s>).
Ken Levy, who is on the VSData team, actually created a whole system of
builders for VFP: he would be a great resource for this project.
