[IronPython] Direct3D IronPython Sample

I looked into it and the Direct3D 10 pre-release does not appear to be included with the SDK redistributable assemblies.  The implication of this is that you will need to do one of the following:
* install the SDK referenced by the readme.htm in Direct3D
* try to backport the sample to Direct3D 9. This could be a good exercise to learn more about Direct3D
* wait for Direct3D 10 to be released

The reason the sample works with the SDK and not the DirectX 9.0 end-user runtimes is most likely the fact that the August DirectX SDK includes a public pre-release of Direct3D 10 as mentioned on the download page. Provided Direct3D 10's APIs do not change much between the August pre-release and the final release, the sample will work sans modifications then. In the meantime, I'll look into whether the needed assemblies included with the SDK are redistributable.
