IronPython Readme:
- we're no longer 2 times faster than CPython at PyStone.  Only 37% with 2.6.1, although we did make massive improvements in PyBench and other benchmarks
- it's been more than several years since .NET was standardized in ECMA
- prefer IronPython.net over codeplex.com/IronPython now as IP's information site
- NOTE: http://www.codeplex.com/wikipage?ProjectName=IronPython&title=Differences was never updated for IronPython 2.6 and we need something here for 2.7 in the future
- .NET 4.0 is required for 2.7, not .NET 2.0 SP1
- sample ipy.exe interaction session output was incorrect for both 2.6 and 2.7.  Updated
- updated statement about what IronPython.sln generates in terms of assemblies.  Specifically, I've removed dead assemblies and clarified that the list of assemblies is a subset of what's actually generated

Removed all traces of IronPython4.sln.  On that note, IronPython.sln is now a copy of the last version of IronPython4.sln.

Removed CodePlex-DLR-Dev10.sln and CodePlex-DLR-VSExpress.sln.  These serve no purpose now that CodePlex-DLR.sln can build both .NET 2.0 SP1 and .NET 4.0 variants of ipy.exe+ir.exe using different build configurations.
