Long term, that's the plan. With function attributes in Python 3, and
the standardized type hits of PEP 484, it opens all sorts of
interesting options for feeding static type information in and
generating "real" .NET classes.

Alex already ported pyc.py to C# (as ipyc.exe) but I think it's on the
master branch, not ipy-2.7-maint. Someday that will be able to
recognize specially-annotated classes and generate "real" .NET DLLs
from them. I say "someday" because I started the work two years ago
now and haven't had a chance to finish yet. :) The prototype I wrote
doesn't work the way I would like, but PEP 484 means I can try it a
different way that should give more reliable results.
