Python threading is not perfect in many cases in GUI programming -- you
have to implement your own notification mechanism (eg. using queue
polling), as usually you can communicate with GUI only from main
application's thread. While this is the case also for Qt, QThread
instances have ability to post events to any arbitrary Qt objects, thus
making life a bit easier.
Anyway, all of above mentioned toolkits have its own pros and cons and
in most of cases choice is a matter of personal taste.
