[IronPython] Announcing IronPython 2.0 VS10 CTP

I'd call it missed opportunity if what C# 4.0 dynamic does is only to
provide the same facilities that VB6 or VB.Net have provided long time ago.
For example, the COM interop thing is nice, but then for the past 8 years
you know that if you want to script some Office or COM objects you don't use
C# or IronPython or (insert dynamic language).
But it looks like there are more here. DynamicObject type and IDynamicObject
looks intriguing and I wonder it finally allows more natural XML or
ActiveRecord object access via property call
like myDocument.Customer.Name.FirstName without resorting to some static
code generation. I also wonder if this also allows C# to simulate open
classes just by putting a hashtable of object and stuff delegate, data,
property into them .
