[Python.NET] Any plans for supporting CLR2.0?

Hi Brian,

I must say that Python.NET feels like an approach I would use more than IronPython.

I like being able to mix both C extensions and .NET extensions together.

I haven't had a need for .NET functionality yet, but if I do it will have to be Python.NET because the rest of my code makes extensive use of ctypes.

The pre-built versions I post are currently built for 1.1, but 
you should be able to build it against 2.x with minimal pain 
(though it wont support 2.x-only features, of course). 

Michael Eddington posted a build against 2.0 back in October:

I hope to get some time starting in Feb. to work on some bugs 
that have been reported and implement support for generics, etc.
I've been slacking off a bit lately given that IronPython really 
seems to be taking off, but it seems like it would still be 
useful to have a native bridge with support for at least the 
bigger changes in CLR 2.x.
