It's fully supported. Their generic term for these paged controls is a
'pageframe', so a wx.Notebook is their dPageFrame class; wx.Listbook
is their dPageList class; wx.Choicebook is their dPageSelect, and they
also have a page control with no tabs called (gasp!) dPageFrameNoTabs.
One thing that they've done is pick names for classes and properties
that are the most common for all toolkits instead of blindly following
the wx names.

All of these classes have the same interface, and respond to the same
events. IOW, they've unified these different classes so that they have
a single API, making working with them much easier.
