Most of the issues discssed on this thread apply to every GUI environment.
They all basically work the same way with the GUI providing an event loop
which calls callback functions in response to an event. If a callback 
goes into a long loop the GUI app will freeze. THats how GUIs work,
Tlinter vv wxPython won't change that. wxPython will give a slightly
nicer look n feel to your apps though (especially on Windows).
