[Ironruby-core] Dead Slow Progress on IronRuby... No Beta Yet

Because of the current heads down nature of the DLR team, I think the
current /perception/ of lack of progress is real.  Knowing that things
are going to change around Mix in the code kind makes one a bit lery
to put too much stock in what we have now.  Meaning, I don't know what
bugs are being worked on and what interfaces and APIs might change
between now and then.  Just makes me a bit hesitant.  That said, one
can still download, play and submit bugs..
