  Josh,

 This commit was mostly a refactoring effort,  not functional 
implementation, it seems PyWin has serious troubles with  VBox  typelib, 
and cannot generate correct wrappers/calls.  Are there people familiar 
with using COM from Python on Windows? Any special switches to midl.exe 
or anything else, to make typelib  compatible with Python->COM bridge?

 Thanks,
     Nikolay
