One more question, how do I debug the IronPython tools? I have created the
experimental hive using the command:

CreateExpInstance.exe /Reset /VSInstance=10.0 /RootSuffix=Exp

and then started the experimental instance of Visual Studio using:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe"
/RootSuffix Exp

This starts an Experimental Instance of Visual Studio which I can see in the
title bar. But when I set IronPythonTools as the startup project and press
F5 I get a message saying that "A project with an Output Type of Class
Library" cannot be started directly.
