I'm interested (as you know) and I'm already neck-deep in IronPython's
codegen, so I'll probably be tackling this next. I think they may be
related anyway.

FRom looking at the API reference, there's no way to generate Types at
runtime in Metro apps, right? Does IronRuby have a way to  inherit
from a .NET type in that case? IIRC that was one thing WP7 could not

That's correct, new types can't be generated at runtime and hence it is
not possible to inherit from an arbitrary CLR type.
