Get Special Folders (ie Desktop location)

I'm just starting out writing Python scripts (in PSP), and need to
find the location of Windows special folders such as 'My Documents'
and 'Desktop' so that I can save files in the right place.  Is there
any method I can use in Python to get these?

If I were doing this in VBScript it'd be:

  Dim    WSHShell
  Set    WSHShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
  msgbox WSHShell.SpecialFolders("Desktop")
