I didn't say so. I just pointed out an alternative, as the OP had issues
with obtaining binary packages for wx + py2.5
Beside that, I do love the Qt library and would always use it in preference
to wx, but this is a general thing and by no means tied to the
OpenGL-programming. After all, that actually is done using PyOpenGL
