	That's correct. We are basing the UI on wxPython initially, but 
wrapping wx for two reasons: to make it simpler to code UIs, and to 
make it possible to use other UI toolkits instead of wx. The first 
reason is by far the more important of the two, but an eventual goal 
for Dabo post-1.0 release (we're at 0.3 now!) will be to allow TkInter 
and other toolkits to be used as well.
