Best if Michael et al chime in, but my impression was that they're working under the assumption that you cannot get C++ code to compile to pure managed (False, use C++/CLI as recommended on the Mono site), and that it must *compile* under Mono (laudable, but I doubt it's necessary -- I've never bothered to recompile the Python Libraries).
A larger worry I have is the possibility that some of this will end up being unsafe code, at which point you will have difficulties in full trust scenarios, such as web servers.

Couldn't the C/C# API just use IronPython objects and methods to
"implement" the Python standard library?
