I haven't seen a Python or other specific language module for this, but the free
HTML Help compiler that makes CHM files also has a "decompile" switch.

The MSDN info on it is here:

The decompilation is done with a simple "decompile" switch added to execution of
hhw.exe:

and the tool itself can be downloaded here:

You should be able to simply shell out and run the decompile automatically.
