I'd love to see some Jython technology used for .NET.  At the time 
Python.NET started, there was very strict NDA, so discussing the project 
with jython-dev, or even python-dev, was taboo.  Greg Stein and I made a 
pragmatic decision to go with the p2c tool as a framework over jython as 
we alrady had experience with p2c and didnt have the time-lines to 
understand jython before embarking on our pilot code.

But see my previous post - time (generally represented as money <wink>) 
is the commodity most scarce.
