My thanks to Messrs Don Dwiggins, Mark Hammond and Gregory
Smith for their advice and information are overdue. Truth is, I'm just
returning to this task.
I have read almost all of "Python Programming on Win32" with real
pleasure (which is rare enough where software books are involved).
Unfortunately in my haste to get work done I skipped over the part
of the COM chapter to do with remote servers and therefore missed
the information about how the software decides between an in-
process and a local server.
