I haven't responded to your first question about wxPython's
functionality as compared with that of MFC because I believe that
Robin Dunn has already done so.

What I was suggesting ~might~ have been useful as a prototype
for use in elliciting feedback from users and to a much less degree
understanding the techniques that would be needed. However, it
appears to me that you might want to make a series of versions
that start with Python driving MFC and culminate in C++ driving
MFC. In that case, I think you're probably right.
