Sure - you should be able to use any managed assembly.

IronPython looks really interesting - I just haven't been able to 
find much info on it, and apparently Jim is going to be busy for 
a while.

Should be. I did a silly demo of driving MSAgent using Python for 
.NET (after running aximp on it). I've never tried using a managed 
component from a plain Python via pythoncom, but it should work. 

In fact, I think Mark Hammond did something very like that to 
implement parts of the python compiler when he was working on the 
activestate project.
