COMServer graphical output

It doesn't seem that this is a COM question at all?  The COM server should
get the data from Access, do whatever to the data, then return it as per
normal.  If the data is being changed in transit try pickling it first.

The server itself shouldn't have a GUI.  It should just be an object like
any other.  In fact, if the server is written in Python, and the client is
written in Python, and both are on the same computer (i.e. not DCOM), using
COM is probably not the best idea.  The server should be a COM client as
well as a Python server, but this won't alter its doing work on the graphic
and returning it to a client.
