C Extensions for IronPython

A while ago Resolver Systems announced an open source project to get Python C-extensions working with IronPython. The project has been quiet for a while, but now that that the Resolver One 1.0 release is out of the way we can devote more time to it.

Fortunately one of our developers (William Reade) went to India over Christmas and spent some time hacking on the beach. He made good progress and has got 'zlib.pyd' loaded from IronPython and can call into it. He has just posted code and an explanation.
There is still an enormous amount of work, but not only does the basic approach work - we have the framework of an implementation.
