Indeed, except that I think it doesn't even use cobjects, but (brrrr) 
Python integers to hold addresses. At least, it did last time I 
examined the code.

My reason for asking for other solutions is that I don't particularly 
like this way of doing things, so I hoped there would be an easier way 
to get things to work on Windows. Especially given the fact that I know 
that all the modules (and DLLs) involved will live in a single 
directory (which isn't true in case of Numeric, where third party 
modules will want access to the API).
