[Ironpython-users] Why is IP 3X slower than python 2.7?

I've been doing some work with python 2.7 having digressed from 
IronPython to which I shall be returning. The thing I notice most is 
that python 2.7 is roughly 3X faster at executing than IP.

Why is this?

I know python27 compiles scripts into 'C' code => .pyc files and that IP 
does not do this. But even so, IP must compile native code into NET code 
which should run only slightly slower than python27.

Regards and thanks for a good NET implementation of python.
