I am not too sure what you are asking.  There are no generic Python 
features in the Service Control Manager - each service using Python is 
completely stand alone. has code that interacts with the Service Control 
Manager, including installing services using arbitary user names and 
start modes.  See win32serviceutil.HandleCommandLine().
