On Stackoverflow pyside has gotten 40 questions tagged in the last 30 
days, wxpython 70 in the last 30 days, pyqt 114 in 30 days, while 
tkinter has gotten 101 in the last week, which would project to about 
425 in the last 30 days.  So tkinter is being used at least by 
beginners. There have been a few tkinter and python-asyncio questions.
