Add F# Scripting to SSIS

SSIS currently has VB and C# languages for writing script components. I think it would be really nice to add F# support too especially with it being a very declarative expression based language good at manipulating data.

    Posted earlier today on "The .NET Language Strategy" blog post, about F#:

    "As a general purpose language it does see quite broad and varied usage, but it certainly has a center of gravity around web and cloud services, tools and utilities, analytic workloads, and data manipulation."

    Analytic workloads. Data manipulation. The .NET team sees it; it's time the SSIS team sees it, too.

    Has anyone tried to develop a custom scripting component that accommodates F# scripting?

    Absolutely. Why not use the most powerful and fastest scripting language in Microsoft's VS suite to author these components. I can't believe it's not an option already.
