Thanks!  I'd gotten the thing to work using brackets around the strings and
was too sleepy to figure out why.  Every other programming system I've ever
dealth with uses strings with append statements in listboxes and I end up
just guessing a lot with pygtk.  The best info I'd been able to dig up on
listboxes was that list was deprecated in favor of clist.  Documentation
for pygtk generally appears less than paper thin;  if I can find any
documentation for liststore I'll try to use it...

The combination of c++, swig, python, pygtk, and zope looks like a
potentially winning ticket for the future of software development, but the
components will have to get easier to use somehow or other.
