[Ironruby-core] How to run a XAML file?

I was looking through the mailing list archives for unanswered mails ... eek, sorry Shay! Well, if you still have this question ...

You can also load XAML with System::Window::Application.LoadComponent:

# This loads "foo.xaml" into the "canvas" variable
include System
include System::Windows
include System::Windows::Controls
canvas = Canvas.new
Application.load_component canvas, Uri.new("foo.xaml", UriKind.relative)

This only works when foo.xaml has a x:Class equal to the type passed to the first arg to load_component, like x:Class="System.Windows.Controls.Canvas".
