Driving win32 GUIs with Python

I have a requirement to drive a Windows GUI program from a Python 
Script. The program was originally a DOS program written in Turbo 
Pascal, and was recently translated to Delphi. I don't think it exposes 
an OLE or other automation interface. I don't have access to the source.

A bit of Googling turned up some blog entries, which look useful:

Before ploughing ahead I wanted to check whether any useful Python tools 
are available now, which weren't when the articles above were written.

While not Python related, The "AutoIT Windows Spy" I found here:

looks like it will be useful.

Any pointers gratefully received.

Regards,

Andrew McLean
