You mightn't have, but I suspect more Python programers who've 
written GUI apps have used Tkinter than any of the other APIs.

Not that I'm a particular fan of it, it's just I like 
standardisation, because then you get network effects.

What you say Pythonic, what do you mean? And how do you rate 
Tkinter, PyGtk, PyQt/PyKDE, wxWindows for "Pythonicness"?
