Hello all,

I've just posted the experimental code for accessing CPython extensions
from IronPython. It uses the embedding wrapper from Python.NET so I 
thought I would let you know. :-)

Blog entry:
Article: http://www.voidspace.org.uk/ironpython/cpython_extensions.shtml

Despite some serious limitations it works! I have already had matplotlib
with numpy and Tkinter working from IronPython.

We're evaluating to see if this should be the basis of our 'C Extensions 
from IronPython' project.

All the best,
