First PoC of IronPython REPL Scripting Environment

Based on 2.7, I just created a PoC where I was able to host the IronPython engine inside O2, which meant that I was able to run native Python instructions and create a simple REPL scripting environment

This is what it looks like (You can see the source code that created this environment at the O2 blog: PoC of IronPython REPL Scripting Environment)

I knew that once O2 was updated to .Net 4.0 I would be able to do this, but it's great to see it in action.

Next step is to use the Microsoft.Dynamic and Microsoft.Scripting namespaces to create security-focused DSLs (Domain Specific Languages)
