I've been playing around with it just a little bit. The project I'm working on
has no need for cross-platform GUI support so a lightweight Windows-specific
framework is pretty appealing (we're currently using wxPython, which is
great, but the startup time and download size are huge compared to Venster's
quick launching and tiny code base).
Anyway, on the ctypes mailing list Henk said that he had taken a break from
Venster but was hoping to get going on it again soon, so now might be a good
time to offer some help - others there might have some code to share too.
Also, IIRC if you do a CVS grab of the Venster code (rather than what's been
packaged up) there is a _tiny_ bit more documentation (notes, really, but
