What if I want to be able to write multi-platform applications without
having to deal with OS-specific packaging schemes for every OS that I
want to run on?  Even if I only want to run on Linux, I don't see how
to package a wxPython application to minimize end user hassle.  The
only realistic GUI's to use are Tkinter or HTTP/HTML over a local
socket talking to a user-provided web browser.
