[Python.NET] Trouble getting Python for .NET to work in Ableton Live

Not sure how insane this is, but if you want to really roll your sleeves
up you might be able to checkout the old python2.2-supporting branch of
python.net and build it using the .NET 2.x tool chain.

If it works (no guarantees, but it might), then you should at least be able
to load .net 2.x assemblies, though you wouldn't be able to leverage
features that were supported in .net 1.0.

I don't know much about Ableton (I'm a Sonar guy...), but if they haven't
done anything too weird to the python they ship with you could also
investigate dropping in a newer python exe, dlls and libs...
