So, no Direct/X?  Good -- I thought elsewhere you said you'd
use those, but they don't fall into either category.

I'm pretty sure you can get GPL versions of Qt, and GPL does
meet the official defintion of "open source", so you might
still be interested in it.  wxWindows, I believe, has a more
liberal license, akin to Python's, so if you want to use open
source libraries but still keep the option of releasing YOUR
code in closed-source ways, wxWindows may be preferable (it's
a long time since I coded wxWindows/C++ code, and it never
was anything substantial, so I'm not sure how easy it is to
code for in C++; wxPython is not bad, though I personally
still prefer PyQt -- Qt's superb docs matter, for example).
