This is a little investigation I did for Trac on IronPython.
The primary link of interest is:
Okay, initially I intended to write a good introduction on involved
issues to be readable by outsiders, but I give up. I paste what I
wrote on Trac ticket. Food for thoughts.

Re: jonas IronPython supports os and StringIO module now.
Re: mgood As you pointed out, ClearSilver is a C extension and can't
be made to run on IronPython. I think getting Genshi run would be
possible though. See below.
For SVN access, I am willing to write a VC plugin using .NET
subversion libraries like NSvn.
For a database library, I have DB-API implementation backed by ADO.NET
and a compatibility module for sqlite ready.
I also have md5 module using System.Security.Cryptograpy ready.
For compiler package, the package itself is pure-Python, the problem
lies on parser module. PyPy project wrote a pure-Python implementation
of parser module, which should run just fine on IronPython:
Another possibility is new _ast interface in Python 2.5. (See
http://genshi.edgewall.org/changeset/31) Unlike old parser interface,
it looks very feasible for IronPython to implement this interface.
Bytecode generation is problematic. Naturally IronPython can't support
new.code called with CPython bytecode. I am thinking about using
unparse to turn that to Python source and then exec to get a code
Lots of rough ideas.
