Making wxPython a standard module?

Just out of curiosity, what are the chances of this happening (sort of like 
what happened with sqlite)? I read somewhere that Guido said the only reason 
Tkinter is still the standard GUI module instead of wxPython is because "it 
was there first." Perhaps a joke, but it got me thinking that there could be 
a chance of this happening.

I'm sure most Python work doesn't involve GUIs, so it's not a priority, but 
to have wxPython be a standard module would be great, and it might even 
encourage people to play around with GUI work more than normal (I don't 
think that's a bad thing!).   :)
