[python-win32] Examples of Win32Inet use

Thanks for the advice. Unfortunately I'm not a C developer - I would
have no idea how to go about this. I was hoping that there would be an
easy way to use these functions purely in Python. 

The problem is I've no idea how to use the syntax - I'm quite unfamiliar
with how you provide a value for AUTOPROXY_OPTIONS - I had hoped that I
could provide a tuple of values which match the arguments expected by
the function (as desctribed by MSDN) however there seems to be some
other trick I am missing. 

PS. Unfortunately I have no control over the legal disclaimers - I work
for an institution which is overly fond of such things. I'm sure they
are nonsense in all but a few very spesific circumstances.

Are you sure this works in C?  Have you tried it?  In
WINHTTP_AUTOPROXY_OPTIONS, you aren't telling it which mechanisms to try
in order to get the proxy auto-config file.  I would have guess you need

I have to say, your messages carry the most obnoxious legal disclaimer
I've encountered in a long, long time.  The efficacy of such disclaimers
has never been established in court, to my knowledge.
