[IronPython] Need help using IronPython from C#

I'd like to do the equivalent of something like...

import RemoteAdmin

ls = RemoteAdmin.ConnectToService("localhost","LogViewer")
numEntries = ls.GetNumberOfEntries()
e = ls.GetEntry(numEntries - 1)
entryString = str(e)

in C#.

So I get as far as....

PythonEngine e = new PythonEngine();
# The RemoteAdmin module is in an assembly built using  
IronPython.Hosting.Compiler and then referenced by the C# project
ClrModule clr = (ClrModule) e.Import("clr");

and then I'm lost.

Is there a way to make a delegate from a method that exists in the  
PythonEngine environment and then call the delegate from C#?

I'm aware of the Evaluate and Execute methods of PythonEngine, but  
I'm looking for a more direct way to call the python methods and  
access python object attributes, rather than building up strings to  
pass to Evaluate.
