[IronPython] Some new bugs with asssembly loading...

The reason is that clr.References is a tuple without improved formatting. Using tuple was a way to get the idea out there and gather feedback and experiences. Ultimately we may use some custom written tuple-like structure.

What is causing clr.References to display without any obvious separation of the info for the different assemblies?  Shouldn't its ToString make it more clear that there are three different assemblies, e.g. with something like

(mscorlib, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089), (System, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089), (c.d.e, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null)

(using ",<newline>" as the separator).  The way things are, it's certainly not obvious how many assemblies there are in the output.  (The first few times I looked at this, I totally missed that System was in there at all!)
