In between patients I did a copy of a wxPython list from gnumed and a similar 
list in a qt listbox.

This well illustrates gui design problems in wxPython.

Screen real estate is at a premium. the wxPython screen dumps are on the left 
and pasted next to them is a qt equivalent.

What is happening is that as you downsize a font in wxPython cause in theory 
you want to fit more items in a list, the font gets smaller, but the blank 
space between rows doesn't shrink properly.

When you extrapolate this to all over the screen you run into big problems 
with trying to fit things in in a nice clean elegant way.

This is a simple example of why QT is much better to work in, and will 
ultimately give a much better result.
