I was just wondering if there are any plans to support the
CreateTypeLib2 API either instead of, or in addition to, the 
CreateTypeLib API.
I am currently using pythoncom to generate type libraries, but 
I ran into an issue supporting optional parameters.   After a 
lot of digging I discovered that the old CreateTypeLib API doesn't 
support them.   I have currently built a custom version of pywin32
that uses the new CreateTypeLib2 API, and everything works great. 
I'm hoping that the CreateTypeLib2 support can be added to the 
official release.
