BUT HOW IS IT DIFFERENT??? You never answered the question.

So it's not like Python if it's incompatible.


Why not write a paper _clearly_ stating what makes Pyxc different from the 
other Python .NET implementations?? I'm sure if you have a cleanly written 
paper all of this mass confusion would not be necessary. Sorry, if this is a 
flaming post, but nothing seems to be solid on what's going on.
