[IronPython] Ability to use CPython csv module

Just curious if anyone has been able to get the CPython csv module to work
with IronPython (2.6 rc2)? I use csv regularly for my regular python
scripts, and I am exploring the ability to switch over to IronPython, simply
for the ability to put together decent GUIs. Not being able to use it throws
a major monkey wrench into the works.

I have tried doing the following:

C:> set IRONPYTHONPATH=C:\Python26\Lib
C:> ipy
IronPython 2.6 (2.6.10920.0) on .NET 2.0.50727.3603
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import csv
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "C:\Python26\Lib\csv.py", line 8, in C:\Python26\Lib\csv.py
ImportError: No module named _csv
>>>

Same thing happens with the bsddb module. Now I have looked for anything
named _csv.* in my python installation and have not found anything like
_csv.pyd, _csv.dll, etc, so I am assuming that it is not something that
should be in the PATH / PYTHONPATH / IRONPYTHONPATH folder(s).

Anyone have any idea how to get this to work? Is it something that is simply
not supported by IronPython?

Thanks in advance
