Yep. There is a theory that "regsvr32" has extensions to allow
Pythoncomxx.dll to do the registration for arbitary .py objects. While
pythoncom has support for this, I have never digged into it in any detail -
back when I looked at it, that regsvr support was very new and not widely

I think the cab. I'd love to get this working well, and py2exe is on my
list too - spambayes has given me a real life project to use it on :)
