[IronPython] Good example of with statement usage in IronPython/COM

There was a leak in IronPython where we were keeping COM objects alive once the IPy code manipulated the COM object. The code in the blog seems to be dealing with this bug with the use of the auto method which calls Marshal.ReleaseComObject in the finally. The bug is fixed in the 2.0 tree and so it should be possible to shorten the code a lot and end up with just a few levels of nesting.

I found this interesting blog post which has a good example of with
statement (Python 2.5 feature) usage in IronPython/COM.


It's written in Japanese, but the code speaks for itself. The last
line would translate to something like "It's getting shorter, but
nesting is a bit too deep..."
