I understand...

However, based on my experience with wx and from what I've heard and/or
found out, it is clear that wxpython runs better on Win32 platform (even
pygtk guys confirms it) than on Linux which is a pity considering that
Linux is kind of 'native' platform for it.

Moreover, wx is an extra layer on top of GTK (on Linux) which is not
required and I do not like wxglade & its automatically generated code
which has to be shipped with GNUmed. Instead, I would prefer shipping plain
Glade file and using GtkBuilder for generating GUI code withing GTK+

I believe pyqt is nice and robust toolkit, but I simply prefer GTK+
toolkit and will use it for another project in Haskell.

Moreover, GTK+ is written in C and therefore much better suited for
providing binding for other (or dynamic) languages.

Karsten also confirmed that choice of wxpython is due to historical
reasons, so maybe it's time for a new history.

If the GUI code is nicely abstracted, it won't be so huge
undertaking...let's see.
