It makes me wonder why such a useful package as PyQt is not a part of
Python distribution (the same holds for GTK bindings).
I think it would be good for users and developers to have them installed
together with all other modules.
Also, an ideal solution for me would be a wrapper module (anyGUI, kindof),
which would check for Qt etc. libraries on systems that support it; if not
found, it would use Tkinter. Is there anything like this?
I think such wrapping would be somewhat easier with GTK and Tkinter (they 
seem a bit similar).
