IronPython 1.0 for .NET has been released on CodePlex.  I haven't really done anything with dynamic languages, but I can certainly see their benefits, particularly in a RAD environment.  I realize that both Python and Ruby make efforts to make sure the dynamic code is maintainable but I think the jury is still out on how easy/difficult that is.

IronPython is a 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.

Note that this wasn't some fly-by-night development, but had serious involvement from the CLR team at Microsoft.

It's worth checking out in your copious free time.
