[IronPython] DLR Hosting Spec

We discussed this today and think mime type support is a good idea.  Apparently we briefly looked at the Java APIs a year ago but we'll plan to do another review to compare and contrast the two.

I think there are a lot of things to learn from Java. Java 6
introduced javax.script hosting API.

For example, ScriptRuntime corresponds to Java's ScriptEngineManager.
We can compare API to get scripting engine for the given language.

ScriptEngine GetEngine(string languageId)
ScriptEngine GetEngineByFileExtension(string extension)

ScriptEngine getEngineByName(String shortName)
ScriptEngine getEngineByExtension(String extension)
ScriptEngine getEngineByMimeType(String mimeType)

Is getEngineByMimeType a good idea? Similar comparisons can be made
for all other APIs too.
