Likewise, PyQt has a great table widget. But even a year or two ago, 
PyQt already had a useful multi-columnt listbox and a non-editable
table view. That was part of the reason I decided to go with PyQt.
Constructing a table using the Tkinter canvas and then popping up
edit boxes at mouse clicks wasn't exactly appealing.

I've never had a hang with Pythonwin, but I haven't used it all that
much, and only to develop PyQt apps. On Unix, it's impossible to let
the combination of bash and nedit hang - or XEmacs.
