[IronPython] import socket fails on Win32

Not addressing the import of python byte code, have you taken a look at
.NET's TcpListener and TcpClient classes?  I've grown rather fond of
them in a recent project.
Otherwise, some Python bytecode -> Python source -> IL path would need
to happen.  If the bytecode references a C-code Python dll, that would
need some wrapper created (akin to a DllImport-attributed method in C#),
which I don't think would be difficult to pull off.

Most of my code transitioned perfectly to IronPython,
however I did reach one module that failed importing
"socket" on a Windows platform.

I've traced the problem to a precompiled library in
\Pyton24\DLLs folder, called _socket.pyd which is
imported from \Python24\Lib\socket.py
Apparently IronPython cannot handle the precompiled
libraries yet. Any ideas on what needs to be done in
order for this to work?
