I really want to see wxPython on there so I can move PythonCard over. but, 
wxWindows for CE isn't available yet, and frankly I think that project is dead.

I don't think wxPython requires PIL or pygame. Unless you're saying you also need 
those goodies.

Well, CE and Windows both have win32gui.. You can use the CreateDialogIndirect() 
functionality, if all you need is entry forms.
