[IronPython] events in PowerPoint

I'm new at Ironpython, I've been looking at a way to interact
dynamically with PowerPoint.
I got some simple code to work to access the text in a box which is
selected in PowerPoint:
from System.Runtime.InteropServices import Marshal
import Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint as PowerPoint
ppt = Marshal.GetActiveObject("PowerPoint.Application")
sel = ppt.ActiveWindow.Selection.TextRange
This is nice, because if I change the text that was initially selected
in PowerPoint, and do "print sel.Text" again, I get the updated text in
Python (i.e., I get a reference to the TextRange object, which I can
interogate with the Text method when changes are made in PowerPoint).
My question is: is there a way to register an event handler to do some
action automatically when the text is modified in PowerPoint? Ideally,
I'd like my Python script to execute some actions whenever the TextRange
object is modified in PowerPoint. If that's not feasible, I could also
run those actions when the user does something particular (like changing
his selection, or saving his PPT file).
I've been trying to introspect my Python objects, but couldn't locate
anything that would allow me to setup my event handler.
Any comment or suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
