Thanks for the lead. I have the pywin32 source code and have found the files
that appear to contain the code I need inside of some "*.i" files. After a
bit of Googling and paying attention to the blatantly obvious *.cpp files, I
realized Hammond's code is written in C++ whereas Python uses C. I am
familiar with neither language very well but if I can't find a work-around
for Windows asynchronous I/O, I will be learning a bit of both of them.

Please feel free to suggest any other ideas that don't rely on my sparse
knowledge of C and C++.
