I'm sorry I can't speak on its "pythonicity" (my memory sucks), but I 
did find Roger Binns' BitPim program (http://bitpim.sourceforge.net/) to 
be an excellent source of ideas (steal steal steal) for wxPython code, 
and I do remember it struck me as being exceptionally well commented and 
well structured.  I suspect it's pretty Pythonic, too, since Roger seems 
pretty brilliant from where I sit. :-)
