[IronPython] __import__ bugs?

I'm quite new to Python in general, but one of the first things I wanted
to try was to get IronPython to load scripts out of my own virtual
directory system. __import__ seemed like a good place to start, but
IronPython seems to be doing things differently from CPython.
CPython expects you to overwrite __import__ in __builtins__, but that is
read only in IronPython. As far as I can tell, IronPython will only use
your __import__ if it's a global.
The other thing is that the fromlist doesn't get what I would expect.
Given the following:
def __import__(name, globals, locals, fromlist):
from a import b
CPython will print "('b',)", but IronPython will print "[None]". I'm
guessing that's a bug.
