As Roger already said, upload a patch to the pywin32 project.
OTOH, it should (hopefully!) been easier to do it with ctypes - I assume
creating typelibs isn't that performance critical. Currently ctypes.com
can use but not create typelibs: readtlb.py creates ctypes Python
wrappers from type libraries - my plan it to also create typelibs from
the Python wrappers.
