Python runs on next to anything.
wx is replaceable for less demanding client applications e.g. on handhelds, 
e.g. by QT, Fox,  or just plain curses - the latter running on next to 
anything too.
However, with pyPgSQL you are stuck, much harder to port - but with a backend 
library in pure Python, hey - a TK interface as usually delivered with most 
Python installations out of the box plus our Python code, and you're running.
