There is, of course, still _some_ fiddling around you have to do to setup
the Box for native Win32 API calls ... I'd be interested in seeing a
sample of the code when you get it working...

The one downside of doing things this way (beyond the lack of portability)
is that you do have to know the win32 apis well, which I do not.  But it
does seem to be a more quick-n-dirty approach than having to go through
all the overhead of wxWin or Tkinter setup ...
