[pycrypto] port for IronPython

I have programmed a port of the parts of PyCrypto that are written in c 
to c#.  The basic approach was to wrap c# routines from BouncyCastle in 
a PyCrypto-like interface.  The python part of PyCrypto is mostly 
unchanged, except for code like this:

import sys
if sys.platform == "cli":
    import clr
    import IronPyCrypto_Util_strxor as strxor

in some of the __init__.py files.  Basically all the pyd files get 
replaced by a single dll  I don't know if you are interested in 
incorporating this into PyCrypto.  I think that is unlikely as first, I 
am American and second, it's really a different animal.  Would there be 
any objections to me putting this up on bitbucket?  Any problems with 
the name IronPyCrypto (very unoriginal I know).  It still needs a 
little work....but currently passes all of the existing tests.
