Unfortunately the automatically-generated bindings, while fast and
complete, are not quite as pythonic as the old PyGTK bindings were.  The
abstraction layer pygobject provides leaks some of the underlying C-isms
through.  I can't remember exactly which bits feel the most foreign as
it's been a while since I used it.  But who am I kidding?  PyQt (my
preferred toolkit) or PySide aren't terribly Pythonic either; lots of
C++ and Qt abstractions leaking through various Qt types when native
Python types would be preferable (like lists and dictionaries).
