I believe everything under wx.lib is pure Python, although in many
cases it subclasses existing wxWidgets widgets to extend them.  Also
over time some of them have been replaced by wxWidgets core additions.

Could be - you can see the source in the dialogs.py file in the
wxPython distribution, and the comments indicate they were supplied by
Kevin Altis who also develops for PythonCard.  Not sure which came
first though -)
