eGenix mxTextTools, a part of eGenix mxBase used by SimpleParse, is a
C extension and won't work with IronPython unmodified.

mxTextTools certainly is a fine piece of code that would be worth
porting to .NET, but it isn't yet.

For alternatives, I refer you to Python parsing tools list maintained
by Ned Batchelder.

I believe Resolver Systems have used PLY with IronPython for parsing
with good success.
