This is great news! Had no idea this was under development.

As IronPython runs under many different operating systems now, it
would be useful to know what the dependencies are for numpy and scipy:

- is Windows a requirement?
- does it work under Mono?
- can IronRuby etc take advantage of these libraries?

I tried to run the build the process with xbuild rather than msbuild,
but it looks like System.Numerics might not be implemented in Mono?

Thanks!
