[python-win32] Newbie question - how do I use the constants generated by makepy?

I'm trying to use ADODB from Python, but it's not clear to me how I'm
supposed to access the constants for various enums...

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "adotest.py", line 10, in ?
    conn.CursorLocation = adUseClient
NameError: name 'adUseClient' is not defined

Am I supposed to manually import the
EF53050B-882E-4776-B643-EDA472E8E3F2x0x2x7.py file that makepy
generated at the top of my own program, or is it supposed to get
automagically imported when I call win32com.client.Dispatch? If it's
automatic, how do I get at the constants?
