You shouldn't have to do anything special. If your class's _reg_clsctx_ has 
the CLSCTX_INPROC bit flag on, you'll get a dll and a little extra 
registration logic. It's the _reg_clsctx_ flag that drives this - you don't 
have to use any command line options or anything else.

You cannot use an inproc server created this way from a process that uses 
Python - the dll *must* be the one to start Python (or it can't get it's 
import hooks in). So you can't fire up the interpreter to test it - you'll 
need to use WScript or Excel or ...
