Not noticed this myself but I would like to add here that wxPython is 
wonderfully portable. I have run wxPython apps on my OSX machine that 
were developed exclusively on a Windows machine without any problems.

Portability is my biggest concern when writing GUI code so I would push 
for wxPython.
