General Development IronPython is a new implementation of the Python language targeting the Common Language Runtime (CLR). It compiles python programs into bytecode (IL) that will run on either Microsoft's .NET or the Open Source Mono platform. Elsewhere, "A Byte of Python" is a free book (or free tutorial) on Python. It is meant to be a guide to anyone learning Python.

and what would stop Python from eventually compiling down to Parrot bytecode?

Nothing of course. I just figured the community would be better off focusing efforts on a Parrot runtime than a "CLR". (Well, that is, if I understand correctly what Parrot is.)
