 From what I hear on this list, it is possible to do serious GUI 
development with all of the major toolkits (Tki, wx, GTK, Qt). FWIW 
Tkinter people tend to use Pmw for additional funtionality.

I understand your initial excitement for wxPython. FWIW I plan to 
seriously check out PyGTK for GUI programming. It seems to be pretty 
usable on win32 as well with the version based on GTK2. If you're 
concerned about GTK apps not having the native Windows look and feel you 
should read the PyGTK FAQ :-)
