[IronPython] IronPython 1.1.1 wish-list?

On quit(): quit is actually not defined by the runtime implementation of Python, rather it's part of the standard library (defined in site.py and installed w/ the setquit function).

Running w/ the standard library set (or just from CPython's Lib dir) will result in that functionality being available and works even in v1.0:

C:\Python25\Lib > C:\Product\Released\IronPython-1.0\ipy.exe
IronPython 1.0.60816 on .NET 2.0.50727.1433
Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
>>> quit()

C:\Python25\Lib >

I'd rather not duplicate the functionality in the runtime - is there a reason you can't use the std lib (other than we don't include it by default? :) ).

If the bug,
is fixed or somebody shows me a good example how to inherit "file"
class in IronPython
1.1,  I will be happy.

2nd, please provide quit() function, which eases my interactive
IronPython  session.
