I don't think he was saying that, actually. What I think he was saying
is that if the programmer did what he had to do to get Python to work
in .NET, it would probably not work well with some of .NET's higher level
COM-like features. If that happened, one would have to wonder what the
point of going to .NET would be at all. I suppose if they came up with
a very, very nice virtual machine, it might be useful... but otherwise,
it's a bit like programmatic masturbation. :)
