[IronPython] Importing embedded .py files

Having an extensible mechanism for importing files would be very useful. I
would like to be able to import python files stored in a database.

This is an interesting use case that could be done with PEP 302 import
hooks. In CPython it was introduced to allow importing modules from
.zip files, but in .NET setting it certainly makes sense to allow
importing modules embedded in the assembly, which I believe is not yet
possible with IronPython.
