Grazzie tanto Luca! I don't know how I managed to not find it myself, but
that's what happened.

too will survive because a) it's installed on a gazillion machines & b) it's
very simple to use (including Tk) for quickly building (what starts out as)
simple GUI apps. I'm gonna learn it just enough so that I can write
supersimple apps in it. There seem to be a lot of pople that badmouth it,
yet there seem to be a lot of people who swear by it.
That said, I'm going to focus on bettering my Python/Tkinter skills.
