[IronPython] Welcome Curt to the IronPython team

That was subtle indeed. So to fix that, I am pleased to welcome Curt to the IronPython team. Curt has been active in both the IronPython and IronRuby mailing lists, and we are excited to have him officially be working on these projects.

Curt already has a fix in socket support which he should be checking in shortly. This might be the second-fastest checkin for a new dev. Dino had checked in as part of his interview even before he joined the team, but I can't really hold this against Curt since we couldn't accept his patches before :)

Curt will be spending sometime initially on IronRuby too.

That's a subtle announcement Curt. Congratulations to you and the
ongoing success of IronPython! :-D

(I'm interested in the progress of Coils as well - and have an
interesting idea for it, but I need to finish my book first...)
