Wine doesn't have a widget toolkit. Wine just provides enough hooks so
that Win32 programs (and user32.dll) can draw their own widgets.
Theoretically, if you copied a Win32 Python installation to Linux, you
might be able to win32gui to draw things via Wine, or even the Win32 port
of wxWidgets, but that would be silly.
