In Silverlight we don't have access to the local file system.  Instead we the DLR's PlatformAdaptionLayer, which IronPython 2.x builds upon for file access, and that is redirected to the web server.  So our "file system" becomes limited by what HTTP is capable of supporting.

Forgive me, but how is HTTP connected to importing?
