Q: Python Script vs. Win32 SendTo

I'm trying to write a python script that I want to place in Win32's SendTo
directory. I'm completely confused. I can drop shortcuts to various .exe files
in there, and they do what I want. But a .py script... I got nuthin'.
I tried to edit the target of the shortcut to insert "python" (it's in my
PATH), but that seemed to just run python on the file I sent to the shortcut,
not the script referenced by the shortcut. I tried to define a new filetype
with an extention of .sendto, with an Open action that would run the command
line 'python script.py "%1"', but got same result.
I can approximate what I want by creating a batch file, and dropping it's
shortcut in SendTo. I've editted the PIF to close on exit and run minimized,
but it's unsightly, and slow, and DOS-ifies the paths of the files I send to
Anyone have any suggestions for the "correct" way to write a sendto-able
script in python? Thanks for any ideas.
