[IronPython] Inspect Module

It's because we strip out CPython modules that aren't importable by ipy. That is, the sys._getframe issue I talked about at http://knowbody.livejournal.com/13271.html is the underlying culprit here:
    C:\Program Files\IronPython 2.6>ipy.exe
    IronPython 2.6 Alpha 1 ( on .NET 2.0.50727.3053
    Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
    >>> import inspect
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
      File "C:\Program Files\IronPython 2.6\Lib\inspect.py", line 262, in inspect
      File "C:\Program Files\IronPython 2.6\Lib\collections.py", line 106, in namedtuple
    ValueError: _getframe is not implemented for non-zero depth

We should have this fixed in one form or another before the final version of 2.6 ships.

Hi Folks,

Is there a reason why Inspect is missing from the 2.6 msi? It is
present in 2.01.
