The latest version of GTK is [around] 2.0, which has its modern
fontsystem. wxPython uses GTK 1.x, which in turn uses the traditional
(old, stupid, ugly) X windows fontsystem.

GTK allows configuration files to change the appearence of widgets
across all running applications, you can
download various theme files on the web. I am currently trying to write
my own which has "border = 0", without much success (the docs explain
how to write theme files, but not where to put them so those changes

not accessible through wxPython.
Writing our own theme is probably the better solution: this is
how one is supposed to alter the exact appearence of GTK widgets,
(the alternative is patching wxWindows to access these functions)
