I believe that's what he means...and I have been wondering about this for 
awhile.  SWT is very wxWindows-ish in it's parent-child relationships - 
and I think it just looks and feels really cool.

You can easily do it all in Python/Jython - provided you use the .dll and 
.jar file.  A pure Python wrapping of the .dll (i.e. replacing the .jar 
file) would be seriously cool.
