Yes, they have. The original restriction came from Microsoft enforcing a
clean-room implementation for their code, which obviously excluded the
standard library - which is well tested and licence cleared and all that,
but nevertheless non-MS. When they dropped the IronPython project, it
became free to integrate with other software.
Clearly a cultural thing.
