[IronPython] Semi-blocking bug in IP 2B1

Hello all,

There is a bug in dictionaries in IronPython 2 beta 1. I found this 
trying to port Resolver One to IP 2. Whilst I can work round it in this 
case I wonder how many times this bug will bite us in our code base:

 >>> d = dict()
 >>> d[0, 0] = 3
 >>> del d[0, 0]
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File , line unknown, in Initialize##345
TypeError: __delitem__() takes exactly 1 argument (2 given)

In general, error reporting/tracebacks seem to be much worse in 
IronPython 2. If I have time I will try and produce a repro...
