Check out pywin.framework.intpyapp - you will find almost all the pythonwin
"app" framework there, including sys.argv handing. Specifically, "/run"
might be the option you want (and alternatively, patches that get a bit
closer to what you need are obviously welcome)

I'm not sure how simple that would be, but extra code in intpyapp's
ExitInstance might make sense.

Yep - that hasn't changed in over 10 years ;)

What file? Win32ui has most constants you should need. Otherwise, see
h2py.py (somewhere in your Python's scripts/tools directory)

Not that I'm aware of (but things may have changed in the 10 years since I
last looked ;)
