[IronPython] IronPython Post 2.0 Roadmap

For me, the main strength of IronPython is its hosting API and the
simplicity of the Python language. It's pretty amazing on what combination
of C# and IronPython hosting API can do - we use it from running business
rules table, sending python command in a game project and powering our CMS.
In our next business project, we are planning to expose a bunch of
IronPython scripts to the administrator role. Yeah, it's a poor man's DSL,
but it's already there and you dont' have to spend time writing all the
crufts required to write a DSL.

So I'd much prefer a much stronger features in the hosting and ability to
interact with the rest of the .Net framework than supporting a new version
of the Python language.
