[IronPython] How come I cant import time or threading in IronPython

These libraries you are attempting to import are Python standard library 
modules. To import them you must have the Python standard library 
available - and on sys.path for the engine being used to do the imports.

You set sys.path programattically using engine.SetSearchPaths (?) 
passing in an array of strings.

All the best,
