[IronPython] System.XML and IronPython

IronPython first needs to know about the System.Xml assembly.  You can load the assembly with:

import clr

and then import System.Xml will succeed.

Note there are other clr.AddReference* functions as well to do other loads, but some of them are broken in beta 3 (and will be fixed in beta 4).

Do you want to help develop Dynamic languages on CLR? (http://members.microsoft.com/careers/search/details.aspx?JobID=6D4754DE-11F0-45DF-8B78-DC1B43134038)

Hi all,

Am I being really dumb? I want to access .NET's XML libraries, and I try:

from System import *
from System.Xml import *

and I get:

"ImportError: cannot import Xml from System"

What am I missing?
