That would be me :) And yes, I do own/deploy them.

Yes, for 4 and 5 (and .NET 4, .NET 3.5, WP71, and Android). I quickly
tested with both types of projects, so it should work.

No, it's the normal standard library, although you touched on the
reason why it's separate - eventually there will be compiled and
zipped versions as well (I don't think pyc.py can generate
Silverlight-compatible assemblies right now). It has a dependency on
the other package, so installing it into your project should pull in
the IronPython package as well.
