You could just "recompile" your Python classes with the Jython port
and they would be available.

Another path would be to take an existing free Java compiler, for
example Guavac or one written in Java preferably and modify it to
generate CIL output instead of JVM byte codes.  

You could use the recently released J# compiler from Microsoft to
quickly bootstrap your own J# and then we could get a lot of software
from the Java world ported over.
