I shouldn't think that Jim Hugunin will divert from the standard. In
fact he's even been asking on Python-Dev whether they should replicate
the bugs in Python 2.4 or stick with the documented behaviour !

Jim is in charge of the project and was the lead developer behind
Jython - so he literally knows Python inside out.

Anyway - PythoNWin and COM may well be the right approach for your
problem anyway. :-)
