Hi Scott.  I noticed later that the particular one I was
trying to use had no IDispatch interface.  If python
can also do custom interfaces do you know where
I can find example code?  If I can look at a python
client using a COM server with a custom interface
I think I can get going.  I'm just not sure what I have
to use.  If I have to get the IUnknown ref. then do
QueryInterface or whatnot.  The little snippets
in the COM html docs show like obj.QueryInterface
but they don't show you how to get the initial object
if it's not an OleAutomation object with a ProgName

I did get an ActiveX .ocx I wrote working pretty easily
so that's very cool.
