It's not just a matter of robustness. PythonCard is limited to GUI 
development, while Dabo is a fully-fledged application architecture 
intended to allow you to build complete suites. So not only does it have 
a superior GUI editor, it also has report development facilities and 
many other features that simply weren't envisaged for PythonCard.
