Having seen sample code for PerlGtk, I can say that as it stands, I'm
not sure I would want a direct translation.  There's nothing intrinsically
wrong with the PerlGtk bindings -- I'd just want a more completely
object-oriented set of bindings.  I'm only in the first stages of thinking
about what I'd want in such a set of bindings, and I don't have any real
ideas to offer here yet -- I just have a vague idea that I want the
binding I use to be truly object-oriented and well tied into Python (better
than PythonTk, definitely), and I want to be able to use them in code
that looks compact; extra verbiage bothers me.  I think that means
exporting lots of symbols rather than using dictionaries['with', 'lots',
'of', 'text', 'strings'] and so on.

Vague ramblings...
