I also got the impression that "dynamic" in C# 4.5 will not be quite the same (perhaps Call Sites aren't going to work?). It seems to me that if either of those changed a lot it might break quite a bit of the DLR pieces.

The official response seemed to always fall back to "you can still do it in 'classic' non-metro desktop apps in win8 if you need to".

Hooray for non-answers! Not being able to use IronPython for Metro
apps is going to hurt in the future, methinks. I'll see what I can dig
