[IronPython] Getting a call stack from an exception?

Tracebacks are the correct way to do this, I recommend you install the standard Python library against IronPython to make this really useful - then you can do import traceback and use its handy functions (otherwise you'll be walking the traceback list in sys.exc_info() which won't be much fun).

Subject: [IronPython] Getting a call stack from an exception?

I would like to print out a call stack from an exception object, much like what the IronPython console does when an exception goes uncaught.  I have tried doing something like this:

    ... #something that causes an exception
except Exception, e:
    print e

But, like python, this only prints out the message given to it.  I have also tried this:
    print e.clsException
    print e.clsException.StackTrace

But these print out the stack trace which includes the IronPython library c# code as well.  Is there a way to get the stack trace which only contains the python call stack (like the one the console uses)?
