Can't you pass 0 (anInteger)?

Here is an example using the kernel32 module (kernel32.dll) to get the
module handle to the executable of the current process.

The documentation states that the parameter can be a handle to an
executable or NULL 

Quote from the Platform SDK: 

If this parameter is NULL, GetModuleHandle returns a handle to the
file used to create the calling process.

import dynwin

>>> kernel32 = dynwin.windll.module('kernel32')
>>> kernel32.GetModuleHandle(0)
