[IronPython] Keyword Arguments For C# Functions

Hi Everyone

I am developing a C# application using VS2005 and IronPython v1.1.0 
(currently). I am trying to add a function to a C# class that will be 
callable from IronPython which will take a keyword argument list mimicking:

def fred(self, name, **kwargs):

I found this link 
but I don't have Microsoft.Scripting available.

However IronPython allows kwargs on contructors of standard clr classes like 
System.Windows.Forms.TextBox etc., can I use the same magic as that?

I looked in the source of v1.1.2, do I need to do 'something' with 
IronPython.Runtime.Calls.KwArgBinder and if so what?  Is there a sample 
somewhere I've missed?  Or is it covered in IronPython in Action, if so I 
guess I'd better stick my hand in my pocket :)

Thanks in advance
