python.NET vs. IronPython (was: .net and python)

python.net is a python extension that allows you to call .net classes
from regular python.  IronPython is a python interpreter coded in
either managed C or C#. (not sure which) That python interpreter not
only has access to .net classes, but runs on top of the .net virtual
machine.  It actually may be slightly faster than CPython since it
uses clr classes which have been heavily optimized. I think it's a
little early to tell about that, but it looks promising.  For right
now, python.net looks to be the moderate course if you just want to
call a few .net classes.
