Lets try this a second time :)

Thanks for the link.  I did not know about pynie.  And if you don't know
about it already, its effectively invisible for a google search of

Parrot.org only links to pirate (which the nightly build shows 14 failed
tests and 47 errors out of 62 written tests and the last activity in the CVS
being ~ 3 years ago)

The strength of Ironpython is IMHO, the ability to tap into the .NET
framework.  As a reformed perl hacker, that is more important to me than
having python code that can use CPAN modules.
