[IronPython] Referencing extension modules from hosting

When using a C# PythonModule, there seem to be two ways to load it:
from script using clr.AddReference and into the console by dropping it
into the DLLs folder. However, there doesn't seem to be a
straightforward way to load them in a hosting scenario.
The best way I've found is the following:
string zlibModule = "IronPython.Zlib.dll"
object addRef = engine.GetClrModule().GetVariable("AddReference");
Assembly zlib = Assembly.LoadFile(zlibFile);
It's not terribly difficult to write, but it would be nice to have an
extension method on ScriptEngine that did it.
In a similar vein, it would be nice if the engine could scan the
current AppDomain for assemblies that contain PythonModules - this
would be useful when running under ASP.NET, as it references an
assemblies in its bin/ folder, and having them automatically available
would be handy.
Finally, it would be nice to have an extension method on ScriptScope -
ImportModule? - that did the equivalent of
If these suggestions are useful I'll create issues for them.
P.S. These are the sorts of things it would be nice to be able to
contribute patches for.
