You could probably make your own pyd which wraps this custom interface.
Mark provided scripts for that in ..\com\win32com\makegw. 
In makegw.py is a short explanation what to be done.
If you don't have an IDL file for your interface try to make a new one
out of the typelib via the OLEVIEW.EXE utility shipped with 
Visual Studio. With this you could generate then the .h anc .c files
needed for the makegw utility. Any further question I 
could only answer on Monday.
