I just tried the Tk which comes with Python 2.3 and it looks acceptable on my 
Windows 2k machine, and the performance seems fine (on a 933MHz Pentium III 
with an el cheapo graphics card). I notice that the latest Tk also supports teh 
native Aqua interface on Mac OS/X.

Note also that there is already an open source  general parctice  system built 
Tk (and TCL) - Tk/ Family Practice. See - hardly an advertisment for 
user interface design... but that doesn't mean that Tk should be rejected
