Ok, that was more than two advantages! :) But those are good points. I was
wondering about the size of wx too. Probably huge compared to Tkinter.

You find what ugly? The look of wxPython apps, or the code itself? To me it
seems very nice, but what do I know! I also have started using XRC (putting
the GUI in an xml file instead of in the program), so I see less of the code
clutter my program.
