I'm not sure what an array of variants in VB is -- perhaps an array
that can contain objects of any type?

You may not need to use the array module -- the array module is
specifically for arrays of numerics in situations where performance
matters.  In general in Python, you get array-like behaviour using
lists.  Lists can hold objects of any type.

For example:

>>> myList = [100, 'Test application']
>>> myList[0]
>>> myList[1]
'Test application'

I recommend reading a python tutorial if this is new to you.
