I get annoyned when people claim that IronPython is Microsoft's embrace-and-extend tactics against Python, or anything like that. I urge them to explain these mails:

http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-dev/2006-June/066591.html
http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-dev/2006-June/066803.html
http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-dev/2006-June/065991.html

Developers with microsoft.com mail addresses are asking python-dev about semantics of Python languages. No less. Now say what you want.

The lead on IronPython is Jim Hugunin. He is hardly new to Python, he wrote the original Numeric array package while at MIT and started the Jython project. He also worked at CNRI where he was in contact with Guido van Rossum among others.
