[IronPython] IronPython and Visual Studio Shell

Hi David,

For me this is why it would be useful. My target audience are not programmers by
profession. Hence why Python in the first place, and no recommendation of VIM
:-). As such an IDE particularly for  the GUI construction is almost essential
if they're going to use IP in my application.

Given IP was a 'free' product as are the express versions of VS I thought they
might move to integrate IP into VS Express with the next release. However if
that isn't going to happen then sharpdevelop would seem to be the best bet.

  I have looked at what it would take to make an IronPython addin for
Sharpdevelop but in all honesty I don't have the resources or the time to learn
the sharpdevelop addin system at the moment. If it's definitely not going to be
in VS express then maybe I'll just need to make some time soon ;-)

VSShell might be an option in my case if there is another alternative for
building the GUI (XAML?).

Cheers,

Guy
