[Python.NET] IronPython

I would really like to see a compiled Python.  I think that would be very useful, but of course would require certain changes.  I would be all for strongly-typed public members (leaving the private stuff to its current, variant-ish behavior), with the default being for private membership.  I think the CLR allows objects to return their actual type even if passed in as object types, no?
Otherwise, IronPython seems to be the next best thing, and rather exciting.  I wonder if he's using the CodeDom to do eval()?  I think it would be relatively decent way to go about things.  Of course, he could wrap that part of the CPython interpreter...
