There's "feature compatibility" (both products support COM) and "source
compatibility" (my COM-using app runs unchanged under either CPython or
IronPython). Whether or not feature compatibility is sufficient is
presumably going to be up to the community and the way it votes for changes.

There is COM support in the Pythonwin extensions.  Some people might
consider this to be part of the standard library under Windows, even though
it's not an official part of Python.
