Well, if your app. is target mainly to the UNIX platform, then you may
want to try PyGTK - http://www.pygtk.org (basically wxPython is just
another layer over GTK).  GTK port is available for win and mac also
(look at gimp for eg.) - also see http://gtk-wimp.sf.net.

still, wxPython is better for apps to be run on win,mac and unix, but
gtk+ is catching very close.
