Being forced into VB.NET...can Python code be used in this framework?

IIRC (and I may not ;) ), there are problems with the CLR supporting weakly 
typed language languages like Python and Perl. I think there is optimism 
this will be fixed in the future, but breath-holding would not be advised 
here. ActiveState does have Visual Python, which allows you to use Visual 
Studio .NET as your IDE, but it doesn't allow you to use the CLR or the 
.NET framework.
