Python ActiveX

Is it possible to have python installed as a simple activex control
(like jscript.dll and vbscript.dll)?

Using code similar to the following would install an activex control
(the following code installs msxml ver 4)...
<object classid="clsid:88d969c0-f192-11d4-a65f-0040963251e5"
codebase="" width="0" height="0">

Can this be done with python as well e.g.
<object classid="clsid:[python clsid code here]" codebase=""
width="0" height="0">

I ask this because the user may not need all the extra features
(Pythonwin win32all etc) - it is quite a big download.

I hope to use it as a scripting language in html code:
<script language="python">
python statements here
