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...
