<p class=MsoNormal>Just one other comment on top of what Curt said. &nbsp;You
might more properly think of Main as IronPython 3k. &nbsp;Main includes a ton
of renames and other breaking made in Microsoft.Scripting.Core/System.Core that
will end up in .NET 4.0. &nbsp;We're still working on what we want to do for
2.1 (and input is always welcome of course) but our current thinking is that it
will be API compatible w/ 2.0.<o:p></o:p></p>
