Well . . . I was not able to "cast" this into anything . . . they are 
very different interfaces.

I eventually started looking at the module pyc.py output in the 
Object Browser and trying to use it . . . not much information on the 
Internet for DLRCachedCode . . . and what does exist is . . . well 
over my head.  Reminds me of the old days trying to call a DCOM 
object from C++ . . . was ugly, ugly code . . . this looks similar . 
. . and in the face of the much nicer option below, in true Monte 
Python style I decided to "run away".

Yeah, docs for this look MUCH NICER . . . I'm downloading the Beta's 
now to give this a try.

If this works . . . I'll hang my hat on VS2010 and .NET 4.0 and hope 
I've never forced to look back.

Thanks for the info.
