[IronPython] ipy support in msxsl:script blocks

The answer to this appears to be no - The XSL processor uses Reflection to try and discover the method to be called.  In IronPython reflection won't tell you what methods are available.  We do support the ICustomTypeDescriptor interface which is another way to get this information (which enables scripting WPF), but unfortunately XSL isn't falling back to that.

We'll need to work w/ some other teams within the company to make sure we can get the right amount of support in the right places to make this all come together.  Thanks for bringing this to our attention.  I'm not going to open a bug on this (because it's not necessarily an IP issue) but I believe we will be tracking this one (and similar issues) closely.

Can I script XSL extension objects using Iron Python?
