Of course, IronPython is not Python in the normal sense because you can use it to call into arbitrary CLR classes. (snip) You can't do this in CPython, so if you use these features, then you're not going to be portable.

Well, http://pythonnet.sourceforge.net/ allows calling arbitrary CLR classes from CPython. Also, Python for .NET developers are trying to keep the CLR interface compatible with IronPython.
