What I hate about wxPython is that it's quite frustrating to just try things
out in the interactive Python interpreter. Every few lines I get Segmentation
Faults when I do this. Then, the Python interpreter is gone and I have start
all over. That's just not the Python way of development, where I get exceptions
when I do something stupid.
