See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.controls.stackpanel(v=vs.95).aspx).

While System.Windows.Controls is the namespace where StackPanel and
TextBlock are named in, they are located in the System.Windows
assembly, which is in System.Windows.dll. .NET assemblies are
references with clr.AddReference, which then allows you to import the
namespaces from that assembly as if they where Python modules.

So here's how you'd create a StackPanel in Silverlight using IronPython:

import clr
from System.Windows.Controls import StackPanel, TextBlock

s = StackPanel()
