[python-win32] WMI to find private memory usage

Thanks for the reply Tim.

I have tried the below code:

import psutil
p = psutil.Process(3540)
print p.get_memory_info()

it outputs:
meminfo(rss=157237248, vms=139837440)

which is the memory for working set and  commit.  This is still not
returning me the private value (which is what you see on your task manager).
