also look at the win32 extensions, I remember going through all the
demo code that there is a way to do it (MFC I think but don't know for
sure).  It is simple to do a try except block around the import and
logic to use it since it will only be for windows.  It is used for the
windows IDE also.
  Also check out TKinter3000 at, they may
have something (or you can ship the one from win32 extensions with
your app)
