VC++ (MFC) application and Managed C++


I have big C++ application based on the MFC library.
One of our main goal is to make it more 'dynamic' so clients can add diferents classes or modules by their own to customize some funciotality.
Moreover, we have thougth to add some script capability. Python is our choice.

My question are:

¿ Is it easy to mix managed C++ into a MFC application, and does it worth the effort ?

¿ Can we use some 'class loader' like in java to link diferents classes dinamically from our application ?

¿ Is there any better chooice than Python for .NET in scripting languages ?

*I am novice in .NET. Java seem to us a good chooice, but our the legacy code is big weigth pushing for .NET

Not sure about .NET, but you can extend an existing applications functionality using COM components.
