I agree.  Coming from an all-MS shop, Python sometimes ends up being
the square peg in the round hole for me.  I use it where possible, but
even with the help of the win32 libraries, it doesn't always "feel
right".  I look forward to using Boo or IronPython (should it ever be
released) in my day-to-day .NET dealings.

Maybe Jim could actually comment on this?  I haven't heard anything
about the project since PyCon back in March.
