Hello all,

Interesting post on how the shapely library (geometry calculation 
package) aims for platform independence using setuptools to switch the 
calculation backend.


This already works for CPython and head of Jython - "IronPython seems to 
be a little farther behind".

Part of the setuptools infrastructure includes dependency management, so 
getting to run on IronPython has lots of potential benefits.

All the best,

Michael Foord
