I haven't done it, but I'd love to see your results.  I think that
you're going to need to think out of the box to get this to work well.

You can't really do this in IronPython without a static compiler.  We're
planning to provide a static compiler sometime in the future, but it's
not available today.  I'm also afraid that you're going to run into
trouble with the custom attributes that are used a lot for web services.
We plan to support these with Python 2.4 decorator syntax, but that's
not implemented yet either.

Wish I could be more helpful - Jim
