I think there's a possible misconception floating around here... the
libary code to support the implementation of com servers in python is
not of itself a com server and hence has no type library.

There is code for a "hello world" com server in the win32com
documentation - see
<>. There
are a couple of other examples in site-packages/win32com/demos
(assuming you've installed the win32com stuff).
