[IronPython] How to get ToString() working, and questions about GetSysModule() and GetClrModule()

We've hosted Python inside our C# application and all seems to work 
well.  Recently, one of our programmers has asked to use ToString inside 
a python expression.  I read online we need to import the "clr" to make 
that happen.

The code for kicking it off looks like:

_engine = Python.CreateEngine();
_scope = _engine.CreateScope();

I'm curious, if I want the Clr already-imported to a program can ask for 
a fixed-point's ToString("C"), am I supposed to be able to use the 

Since both it and CreateScope() return scopes I thought I'd try using 
the scope returned by GetClrModule() to evaluate an expression.  
Suddenly, "True" no longer evaluated.  It had no binding.

Signed confused.
