Someone did a WinCE port a while back, but I don't think it's actively
used much.  The approach might be reasonable if you're an expert with
some time on your hands, but for a newcomer with an onrushing
deadline, you may be better off using whatever you're already using
(VB or whatever), and keeping Python in mind for some future project.
