wxPython probably does a better job at being cross platform than
PyGTK.  I have used PyGTK in the past, mainly because I wanted a
native-looking GNOME application.  I gave a talk on it in December. 
See <http://gcipher.sourceforge.net/>.  If you want a trivial example
project to get you started, just ask, and I'll send you one that I
wrote.  By the way, if you're going to use wxPython, I've heard that
PythonCard takes a lot of the pain out of using wxPython.
