[IronPython] Microsoft.Scripting.Shell no more?

it looks like it moved to just Microsoft.Scripting namespace and is now in the Microsoft.Dynamic assembly instead of Microsoft.Scripting.

This was from http://www.ironpython.info/index.php/Simulating_thread.interrupt_main

The code below is supposed to simulate thread.interrupt, but it seems like Microsoft.Scripting.Shell is not there any more...
import clr
from Microsoft.Scripting.Shell import KeyboardInterruptException
from System import Threading

main = Thread.CurrentThread


Here is a dump from ipy console:
 >>> clr.AddReference('Microsoft.Scripting')
>>> import Microsoft.Scripting
>>> dir(Microsoft.Scripting)
['ArgumentTypeException', 'AssemblyLoadedEventArgs', 'CompilerOptions', 'ErrorCo
unter', 'ErrorSink', 'Generation', 'Hosting', 'IScopeVariable', 'IndexSpan', 'In
validImplementationException', 'LanguageOptions', 'ParamDictionaryAttribute', 'P
latformAdaptationLayer', 'Runtime', 'ScopeStorage', 'ScopeVariable', 'ScopeVaria
bleIgnoreCase', 'ScriptCode', 'ScriptCodeParseResult', 'Severity', 'SourceCodeKi
nd', 'SourceCodePropertiesUtils', 'SourceCodeReader', 'SourceLocation', 'SourceS
pan', 'SourceUnit', 'StreamContentProvider', 'SyntaxErrorException', 'TextConten
tProvider', 'TokenCategory', 'TokenInfo', 'TokenKind', 'TokenTriggers', 'Utils']

Can someone verify that this is the case?

Or is there a way to raise an exception to the main thread using threading module?
