I'll jump in and say that, for me, wxPython works the way I expect a GUI
API to work.

My experience of Tk is that it's more a slow accumulation of hodge-podge
than a carefully crafted API.  wxWindows was a clean start, and it shows.
To and for me, YMMV.

I also like the native GUI gadgets of wxPython.  It's distracting to not
have one's normal GUI being presented.  Things "don't look right" and
"don't feel right" in Tkinter.

IMHO, YMMV, etc.
