I definitely agree with the general sentiment here - though
there are still some issues ahead with Python on the CLR that
will probably need to be dealt with (attributes, etc.)

Have you been able to find any concise info on IExpando? I've had
an inkling that it could be useful for (unmanaged)Python with .NET,
but it seems underdocumented...
BTW, I'd be happy to lend a hand on this stuff. I was really hoping
that there would be an update on the 'official' status of IP, but
in the meantime I'm happy to contribute in the hope that this work
will be merged in later...
