Should be in sys.argv[1]

Not at things currently stand.  However, a .cpl file is just a .dll with
some special entry points, so it would not be hard to make a Python
interface to this.

There are lots of GUI toolkits available.  If you have a .rc file, the best
solution for them is probably Pythonwin (however, if you want dynamic
dialogs defined inside your code, Pythonwin is not the simplest)
