I see, I think this is effectively this issue:


We need to add a feature to IronPython to support starting an app domain with
a user supplied app configuration file.  Then we can run the code in that app domain
and it'll have the correct configuration in place.  It's not really a PTVS issue but once 
that feature is implemented we could easily support it in PTVS with both the
IronPython launcher and even the default Python launcher.

It should be a pretty simple feature to implement if anyone out there was looking
for something straight forward to get started with. :)
