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.
