[IronPython] Is there an equiv for -X:Python25 in Silverlight?

For Silverlight there's no need to pass -X:Python25 because IronPython 2.0 is 2.5 compatible by default.  What you will need to do is make sure there's a __future__.py that includes with_statement = True (or any other value) that can be imported by your Silverlight app.  Unfortunately from __future__ import [whatever] isn't so magical that it skips the import.

I haven't actually tried from __future__ import with_statement, but
I'm guessing it has the same issue that it will only work if
IronPython was started using the -X:Python25 flag. But is there any
way to enable that for silverlight? I took a look at the hosting APIs,
but I could only see a method for getting compiler options, nothing
for setting them.
