Python on .NET Framework?

When I browse on MSDN website I found something interesting on the download section, in that web page I saw ‘IronPython’ link. I wonder what IronPython is, so I clicked on the link and found the description of IronPython from its website:

  1. IronPython is the code name of the new implementation of the Python programming language running on .NET. It supports an interactive console with fully dynamic compilation. It is well integrated with the rest of the .NET Framework and makes all .NET libraries easily available to Python programmers, while maintaining full compatibility with the Python language.

Although it’s still in Release Candidate version, I think IronPython looks good as it has been downloaded 11889 times. Is there a possibility that Microsoft going to add Python on Visual Studio?
