[Ironruby-core] call an overloaded constructor??

CLR DateTime type is currently mapped to Time Ruby class, so "new" uses only Ruby constructors to be compatible. However, you can use clr_new to call the CLR constructor for any CLR type with a public constructor:

Time.clr_new(2009, 9, 28)

You can also get the constructor method and call it like so:

Time.clr_ctor.call(2009, 9, 28)

This is useful when there are multiple overloads of the constructor among which we are not able to choose based upon the types of the actual arguments.

   Is there a way for me to call an overloaded constructor??  I want to say   date =  new DateTime(2009,9,28) using IronRuby 0.9.2.  I have been searching quite a bit and haven't seen anything so far.

Thank you,
