ElementTree IronPython Support

Fredrik Lundh (effbot) the author of CPython ElementTree mentions IronPython support is coming.

"ElementIron is a (somewhat experimental) implementation of ET's parse, iterparse, and fromstring/XML functions for (guess what!) IronPython. I'll probably do an ElementTree 1.2.X maintenance release with native IronPython support in a not too distant future.

(unfortunately, ElementIron is a lot slower than the CPython tree builder. I haven't benchmarked against stock ET running with Seo Sanghyeon's pyexpat implementation for IronPython, but it seems as if the main overhead is in the C#/IronPython interface layer, not in the builder itself. ideas for how to speed this up are welcome!)"
