This would be a great project for someone to pick up, though it is a large amount of work, it is highly needed for embedded scripting scenarios. And sounds like you'll also be paid :) so if you have time and are a confident C# dev, my all means jump on this.

To make this work the language needs to ensure that the expression trees it produces only refer to live objects (constants) that are IExpressionSerializable. IronRuby trees hold on various method objects, RubyContext instance, not yet compiled Ruby AST, dynamic sites, constant lookup caches, etc. All these need to support serialization. I haven’t done the work that’s necessary to make all this work but this would be the way to go about it."
