Not true.  Look for "comtypes" on this page:

MS calls this "typing assist" feature IntelliSense:

"""
The Visual Studio SDK ships with a Visual Studio Integration sample of
IronPython. This features IronPython projects to be created, syntax
coloring, debugging, and IntelliSense® in Python files and the
IronPython console. This is another example of the benefits of being a
full-fledged .NET citizen: Visual Studio support!

But things are changing very quickly with IronPython ATM.  If you want
to do anything with IronPython ATM, you'd be mad not to be subscribed
to the IronPython mailing list.  Try reading recent messages there,
and asking there if still in doubt, what the current situation is (may
*well* have changed since that article, and in particular you're very
likely to need just the right versions of everything for this to work
-- not necessarily the latest versions).
