[IronPython] expose some namespaces of own application

We are using IP as a scripting engine, embedded in one of our products.

I would like to be able to expose a subset of the namespaces present in
my application assembly (MyApp.exe) to the scripting engine...but hide
the rest:

i.e. when a user does an "from a.b.c import Bar", if a.b.c is "hidden",
then it fails:

>>> from a.b.c import Bar
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
ImportError: No module named a.b.c

whereas if a.b.pub has been "exposed" to the scripting engine, then the
user can import it.

Is this currently possible? I have the impression that it is an
all-or-nothing situation...and I would like to avoid having to split my
classes in several assemblies.

Thanks for all input,

Kind regards,
