I didn't mean to imply that wxPython is in the standard library. Just that you write Python code when you create a wxPython app. I apologize for the lack of clarity.

I recommended wxPython instead of Tkinter because of the opinions I've heard from other Python developers who prefer the former (I've never used Tkinter). Also, wxPython automatically looks native Mac, Windows, and Linux.
