[IronPython] ScriptRuntime.ImportModule("foo") vs. import foo

I have something like the following code:

ScriptEngine engine = Python.CreateEngine();
ScriptScope scope = engine.CreateScope();

engine.Runtime.LoadAssembly(Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly()); // holds
the namespace foo

// the following line throws an exception

// the following if executed works fine
engine.Execute("import foo");

I'm basically just trying to make the types in my executing assembly
available to the script. I assumed that the ImportModule would see
things that had been loaded using LoadAssembly, but this doesn't seem
to be the case.

Does anyone have examples of doing this that works?
