dOOd d3t ls L33t
But pretty useless for a python programmer :)

Erm, that TKhtml has to be compiled in WEIRD ways, installation
nightmare, non-portable -> A total mess -> All in all a BAD thing. 
And unfortunately this kind of thing gives open source a bad
reputation.

There are still people out there who write packages / libraries that
are almost impossible to install.  Or need a special OS, with even
`root' access or whatever or no easy way without being `su'.  Very
unlike what people like about Python.
