When you next have an opportunity to update this page, you might want to change that term to “pywin32”.  Also, to prevent confusion, you could mention that “pywin32” is also used on 64 bit versions of Windows.

I've fixed all references as far back as Python 2.4, including
a few old links to http://www.python.org/windows/win32all which
no longer work.
