And indeed it does. I screwed up in building the zip.

Copy the "" from projects/test/COMclient/test_Standalone/ to 
support. The one in currently support only works with older versions of
Python. In my Python 2.1 testing, I realized that the directory win32com
(which I create to hold gen_py) has to be another level deep, else my
import hack doesn't get used. So I fixed it, but forgot to copy up to
the support folder.
