I should really post some online docs.
However there is still a lot that can be done. For now we have
  button, checkbutton, label, radiobutton, togglebutton, textentry
  editor/viewer, list, tree, popup, dialog, tabs/MDI, openFile, saveFile
  image viewer.

Yes. For example the first window is opened in pygtk. From it I rerun 
its code in wx by selecting 'wx' and clicking "Run it!". From the wx I 
select pyqt and that results in the qt window. However the library is 
not meant to use all 3 toolkits at the same time! There are problems. 
QApplication usually freezes the other exec_loops.  So the screenshot
is actually fake. Because of the qt window (which was opened last) the
other two don't respond!
