[IronPython] Can I pre-add namespaces?

Maybe it would it be easier just to append it to the text prior to
execution.  It didn't appear to have a side effect.  Any performance


ScriptSource scriptSource = engine.CreateScriptSourceFromString(

"import System\r\n" + script, SourceCodeKind.Statements);

I think if you're not replacing Globals on the script runtime you can
fetch the namespace from the ScriptRuntime.Globals scope.  


If that doesn't work for some reason you can always new up a
TopNamespaceTracker, load assemblies into it, and get the namespace
trackers from it.  You'll need to get the the ScriptDomainManager object
which you can fetch w/ the HostingHelpers.GetDomainManager function.

I know I can load assemblies into the script runtime, but how can I add
the imports into the scope programmatically?  I'm trying to avoid
forcing people to write things like "imports System" for scripts.


Microsoft.Scripting.Actions.NamespaceTracker seems to be involved, but
it isn't there till after the scope executes for the first time and it
has no public contructor.
