[IronPython] System.Convert Problem

I think System.Int32.TryParse is the preferred API now.  It allows you to not rely on exceptions to determine that the input string won't parse.

If you're trying to convert strings to ints in IronPython, the pythonic
way of doing it would be to use the built-in "int":

>>> int("A")
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
ValueError: invalid literal for int(): A
>>> int("A", 16)
