[IronPython] Hosting: passing arguments to scripts?

Hey guys -

I'm looking at running Resolver One on IP2B3, and it took a long time to 
  work out how to pass an argument in to a script to run - it seemed 
like I should be able to set the ScriptEngine.Options.Arguments, but 
that resulted in an empty sys.argv. In the end I dug around in the 
source and found the following, which works:

     List argList = new List();
     PythonContext context = 
     context.SystemState.Dict[SymbolTable.StringToId("argv")] = argList;

There are comments on HostingHelper not really being intended for hosts 
- is there a better/less likely to go away method of doing this?
