Release 4 makes it easy to to COM *clients* (although I plan on
cleaning up the code that does this in the near future), including
the EnsureModule stuff (generating dynamically on the client).
COM *servers* are a completely different story.
You can do them (with Standalone and py2exe), but you need to
rewrite most of the top-level code in the server (the register /
unregister / invoke stuff), because most of Mark's "automatic"
code doesn't work unless the server is a script.
Thomas Heller posted an example of how to do it with py2exe
sometime this spring. Something similar works with Standalone.
