[IronPython] Orcas integration?

Good call on both counts.  For the exceptions, under Debug -> Exceptions... 
unchecking 'User-unhandled' for all Common Language Runtime Exceptions, and 
checking 'Thrown' instead enables breaking on stuff like divide by zero. 
For the missing 'global' I had to add 
Microsoft.Scripting.UnboundLocalException (same checkbox settings).  I 
imagine there will be more, but they're easy enough to add as they show up 
in the debug output window as unhandled.  Thanks.
