Can't run a gestalt-style app from filesystem

description

IronPython Silverlight apps must be run from a web-server; opening a HTML file with Python script-tags directly from the file system doesn't work.

I think this is because dlr.xap uses ExtensionParts to download Microsoft.Scripting.slvx, which contains the Microsoft.Scripting* DLLs. This also stops it from running on Moonlight, so those assemblies should just be embedded in dlr.xap for SL2-compat.
