Using Python to automate builds

I am a Python newbie, tasked with automating (researching) building
Windows drivers using the WDK build environment. I've been looking
into Python for this (instead of writing a bunch of batch files).
What I would like to do, is to open a cmd window, and start a Python
script. This script would then (based upon input arguments), build
different flavors of the driver (fre, chk, x86, x64) and do some post
processing (create cat files, sign, etc.).
I was hoping to take advantage as much as possible of exisiting
infrastructure from the WDK. I am able to call setenv.bat and provide
all the input parameters. One of the things setenv.bat does is change
the path environment variable. However, this is not captured by
Python. I could duplicate the functionality, but I'd rather not. Is
there a way to capture all enviroment variable changes being made by a
batch file from Python?
