[IronPython] Importing embedded .py files

This is working except two of the embedded .py files import each
other, so no matter which one I place first, it errors out.  So I
guess I can catch it. lol. It's going to end up being about 60+ lines
of code to import 9 modules into the engine.
Or, I could modify the .py files some more but I prefer not to.
