[IronPython] Adding methods in hosting application during runtime

Still working on integrating ironPython in a web application and just tryed
to do some ajax stuff with AjaxPro. Duriing implementation i realized that i
can't use AjaxPro like the way i do it in c# or vb. not at least of the
problem with the method attributes but the real problem is the matter of
fact that objects i created in the python enviroment aren't available by
ajaxpro because the generated html script looks like this

<script type="text/javascript"
...and this thing does not exist :(

I think a nice way would be to extend the hosting application with some
objects they life next to all classic .NET objects so that a external caller
could not see a difference. But this wouldn't work because the hosting app
isn't dynamic, or does it?
One thought was to use IronPython.Compiler to create a 'real' assembly and
then load it into the hosting application but that sounds a little bit

So my question is :

Is it possible to create objects in the hosting application from a python
script that are callable from extern by reflection (i think ajaxpro does it
by reflection) ?

If i'm absolutly on the wrong way to relize this let me know.

thanks, bernd
