You can use themes. Under MacOSX you have to install X11, but a native
version in on the way.

So wxPython doesn't need a runtime? I don't think so.  wxPython for me
sucks under Linux (built on gtk2) and I don't like its API at all. It
seems a bit awkward to me. Anyway... what do you mean with "much better" ?
