You might find the bwidgets package more interesting than Pmw. I think it's
mc listbox is user changabe. See http://www.effbot.org/downloads/

If not, the TkGrid control is. One python wrapping of it of it can be found
in "NovaGrid" (as can a different implementation of bwidgets). See

Pmw doesn't use win32all. It's pure python, as is bwidgets (and tkgrid can
be built on/for linux).
