GUI definition work like this is a real service.  I urge Alexandre to
continue extending it.  When we have a good system, maybe we will be able to
constuct a visual GUI builder for wxPython.  Even a rudimentary builder
could be a great convenience.

Alexandre, you might also look at ZopeEdit, where Jim Bag (I hope I've got
his name right) is defining wxPython menus with XML, and Glade, the GUI
bulder used for many Linux GUIs, which also descibes GUI elements in XML.
ZopeEdit is at http://www.zope.org/Members/jimbag/ZopeEDIT/, and the XML
menu definitions are in ZopeEDIT.pyw.
