The biggest problem I have with the bindings I have seen (pyFLTK ..
currently using this one, pyGTK/pyGNOME,pyQt) is that the documentation
assumes you use the tookit's original documentation. Many pythoneers
don't use C or C+fuss. In order to understand the bindings, you have to
understand the original toolkit's native language. That alone has put
off many aspiring pythoneers, I can attest to.

My opinions are just that; _my_ opinions.
