[IronPython] Hosting API and PlatformAdaptationLayer

hi Jimmy,

yes, makes a lot of sense to me :-)

already had my own classes derived from PAL and ScriptHost.
i have just overseen the ScriptRuntimeSetup and its HostType property to register them.

works now for me.

The public API to do this is ScriptRuntimeSetup.HostType; an example of using this is in Silverlight. Take a look at Microsoft.Scripting.Silverlight/BrowserPAL.cs and Microsoft.Scripting.Silverlight/BrowserScriptHost.cs. Here's the basics:

class YourPAL : PlatforAdaptationLayer {
  static readonly YourPAL PAL = new YourPAL();

class YourScriptHost : ScriptHost {

  public override PlatformAdaptationLayer PlatformAdaptationLayer {
    get {
      return YourPAL.PAL;

// In code that hosts the DLR:
ScriptRuntimeSetup setup = new ScriptRuntimeSetup(true) setup.HostType = typeof(YourScriptHost) ScriptRuntime runtime = ScriptRuntime.Create(setup) ...

Make sense?
