The F# runtime is interesting.

Does anyone know if Silverlight 4 includes support for the DLR? I think this would make for some very interesting possibilities. I know you've been able to embed IronX into silverlight apps for a while, but this kind of thing never seems to catch on in the .net community until it's available right in visual studio.
