[IronPython] COM Object Issue

That's a really fine question. I had to change all of my COM item access
twice now in adodbapi. I finally ended up using a function, because iron
python and c python are so different in this area. My current code is:
if onIronPython:
    def getIndexedValue(obj,index):
        return obj.Item[index]
else: #pywin32
   def getIndexedValue(obj,index):
        return obj(index)

So I can (for example, reading the field definitions of an ADO recordset):

            for i in range(nOfFields):

Question: Will this continue to work in future versions of IronPython?
