I think Miki's answer is probably on target for doing that from
pythoncom.  That is, don't, but use the Dispatch interface instead.

 From ctypes, however, you can create special objects which ctypes can
use as pointer types.  For example, byref(sometype) is roughly
equivalent to "sometype * xxx" when using ctypes.
