[IronPython] Announcing IronPython 2.0

We don't support this in IronPython 2.0, no.  And oddly, no one seems to
have added this as a "desired feature" in CodePlex, even though it's come up
a few times before on this list.
The most likely way that we'd initially provide support for this is to let
you override the "CLS backing class" that's being used to represent your
Python class -- this would mean that you'd need to do the code generation
for the attribute yourself, though.
