Hi Tim,
I haven't tried in a while (since about 2.0a7 or so), but I recall
there being a number of issues getting it to run. The most important
one is a lack of a templating system that works in IronPython - most
depend on a C core, and the ones that don't (Mako and Genshi) rely on
the CPython "parser" module, which is not yet implemented. You'd also
need compatible wrappers for whatever database you need; the CPython
database modules usually use C libraries, so they need to be written
to call the equivalent .NET library.

Seo has done some of the work with his FePy project
(fepy.sourceforge.net), but I know that at least the compiler module
hasn't been updated to newer versions of IPy.

I'd like to get Pylons running as well, but it'll be a couple of weeks
before I have time to spend on it.
