Hmm.  Is there any way to have MSO "see" IPY as a Scripting or Macro Language, 
like it sees VBA?  I am familiar with writing console (or regular) apps in C# 
and using the Microsoft.Office.Interop assemblies - I could do this easily from 
IronPython but I'd rather it be usable from within the MSO environment.

OpenOffice is better in this regard because it "sees" Python, Java, and Basic 
as just different scripting / macro languages, and therefore it's easy to write 
Python apps that EITHER run from within the environment or outside.
