 We certainly are striving for such a goal. And while Dabo only supports 
wxPython now, we've designed the UI layer so that it is toolkit-agnostic (in 
theory, at least). After we have a full, robust implementation using 
wxPython, we then plan on implementing Tkinter and Qt, assuming that there is 
demand for those toolkits. But since UIs are incredibly complex beasts, we've 
chosen to tackle one at a time, and after looking at them all and considering 
different issues, we chose wxPython as the best toolkit for creating 
platform-independent apps.
