*Very* nice presentation -- THANKS!
Especially interesting to me because my project
uses wxPython and I'm always looking at the
rationales of other GUI projects for their
choices ... I agree with all your points!
Wrt event-driven vs. threading decision, I chose the
event-driven path (Twisted). For non-GUI aspects
(e.g. services), it's awesome ... not as awesome
when the Twisted and wxPython event loops have to
co-exist. :^/ I'm still hoping some guru will
come up with a better solution than the current
compromises (timer, etc.), but they are adequately
functional for now, for my purposes.
Although I probably won't use BitPim myself (I'm very
old-fashioned in my cell phone usage ;) I admire your
concept and execution.
