However, it provides a really bad story for language interop, since the Silverlight SDK and dynamicsilverlight.net have different versions of the DLR.

Ok. :-)

I'm getting some more obscure oddness with Chiron - both under Windows 
and on the Mac. I'm not sure if it is reproducible though.

I'm currently still working on my articles and have to tackle this 
properly soon (probably tomorrow as it is now nearly 1am here).

I'll leave the results for another post with any repro instructions if 
they are consistent. I do wonder if there is some odd kind of caching 
going on inside Chiron?? (Some xap files don't get binaries added - some 
cause the browser to make additional requests for assemblies and some 
just don't work...)
