Python GUIs: Abandoning TkInter and welcoming wxPython?

Well, one reason not to rush to wxWindows is that there is
no "real" Mac version.  I realize that a Mac version is "underway",
but the wxWindows site has said that for a *long* time now.
A beta version was posted about a month ago, but I've not
heard much about it, and most of the wx web site doesn't
seem to know it exists (e.g., the FAQ still says the beta
is forthcoming, and the dowload section appears to still
have the old preview alpha release).  I develop on both Unix
and Mac, and although the Unix part of me finds wx appealing,
the Mac side of me feels like a 2nd class citizen in the wx world.
