    	You're partially right, I suppose, in that the usual structure of 
XML is more like this than the usual structure of Python code.  As 
Carlos mentioned, however, an important point (which I neglected to 
explicitly put into my example) is that if you're doing it in Python you 
can include actual Python code in the GUI definition.  I admit there's a 
certain attraction to totally separating the layout from the code by 
using XML (or whatever) to define the layout and then linking it up with 
Python code, but on the other hand it's confusing to have a button 
defined someplace and have what it does defined in a completely 
different place.
