I didn't know that COM lacked that. Thanks for the info.
Still, there is at least enough reflection in there to support dispatch
interfaces. Would it be feasible for the classes generated by MakePy to
"try" a method call or property assignment even if it wasn't known at
compile time? Is the underlying object used in a dynamic dispatch
interface versus a Makepy interface basically the same object? If so,
the Makepy classes could try the dynamic approach before giving up and
throwing an exception...
