Hugunin has said his job is to "make the CLR better for dynamic languages".
It's unclear to me that directive is synonymous with "develop IronPython
further"; he could invent his own new language and implement that, or work
with other CLR-based projects.  I wouldn't conclude that Microsoft is
adopting Python as a supported tool, or even that Python is Hugunin's
primary focus, until he actually says that's his goal.
