Just a little further background. The Python Software Foundation 
recently awarded a grant to help to bring Jython into line with the 
current CPython release.

Jim Hugunin now works for Microsoft, and hopes to promote Python as a 
full member of the .NET environment. He'll be speaking at PyCon DC 2005 
in March this year, and I hope that his talk will include some details 
of his experiences at Microsoft (though that's entirely up to Jim).
