[IronPython] IronPython (PythonCodePovider) for ASP.NET?

We actually do have a PythonCodeProvider that can be enabled by setting up a web.config that points at IronPython.dll's PythonProvider class.  It is highly experimental and using this compilation mode doesn't pass our full test suite - in other words you might find some features work incorrectly or don't work at all.

We're also investigating other options to try and come up w/ the right model here - we're not sure this is the right way to do ASP.NET & Python together.  This might give you something to play with and as always we'd love to hear your feedback, but you probably don't want to make any long-term bets on it.

Subject: [IronPython] IronPython (PythonCodePovider) for ASP.NET?

Except for one casual mention of this back in August of last year, I can't find any mention of any plans for this.

For me, this is the "holy grail" for IronPython; I need a rapid webapp design and implementation framework, but ideally would like to use Python to drive the business logic behind it.  Can anyone on this list provide any information about any plans and or target dates for IronPython's integration into the ASP.NET framework?
