Google the group for the subject line "Don't understand wxPython ids".
The bottom line is that un-pythonic syntax of wxPython reflects
the un-pythonic syntax of the underlying C++ library. Two of
the fundamental decisions that makes wxWidgets complex and
difficult to work with compared to most other widget sets are
1) Using the "object-ID/event-ID" scheme to hook handlers to
events rather that making handlers attributes of widgets.
It's a more general/powerful scheme, but for small apps
like I write it's just gratuitous complexity.
2) Making the widget hierarchy separate from the layout
hierarchy. Again, it's a more general and powerful way to
do things, but for the small apps I write it's added work
and complexity with no benefit.
