I'm not sure what you're asking about.  A PEP for improving wxWindows
or even wxPython would be irrelavent.

A PEP for removing Tkinter and replacing it with Wxinter would
certainly be necessary, but somewhat premature until Wxinter
exists... I'd also expect it to meet some resistance, but that's only
a guess (I don't use either and don't care :-).
