Where do I get pyscript - I looked in the winall dist 
but couldn't see it.

My forthcoming book uses Python and WSH(VBScript 
and JScript) but it would be nice to tie all three 
languages together in an Appendix or something!

An easier to use object model for running apps in 
windows and accessing files, the registry etc.

The distributed access to remote printers, network drives in 
WSH is much easier than using the Win32 API from pythonwin!

It's slower.
