I think you've missed the point of wxWidgets/wxPython: it uses native
widgets on each platform. On OS X, it uses Aqua widgets; on Linux, QT
or GTK, on Windows, native Windows widgets.

So, you're not going to get the same appearence on different
platforms (which is a good thing; I don't want to use something that
looks like Windows on a Mac).
