[python-win32] Reading events from event logs using wmi

I've been having a look at the wmi module in the hope of being able to
read the event logs of a windows server and save them as a standard text
file for archival purposes.
However, the only method I can see is the BackupEventLog method. I kind
of figured if I opened the log, and did a for loop through it I could
read each event logged - this doesn't seem to be the case ;-) (or I'm
being a bit dumb ;-) )
Is it possible to read individual events from an already written log
file using this module? If there is a documented method (I've found the
watcher method, but do not want this) then all pointers to relevant
documentation (or snippets of code!) appreciated.
