It should be possible to do better than Tkinter; that has to jump through
hoops to get around all the <shudder> Tcl floating around in Tk.

Just to kick around a few ideas, what should a python version of simple.c
look like? I was thinking something vaguely like

from gtk import *

def hello:
	gprint "hello world"

def destroy:

w.destroy = destroy      #alternatively w.commands{"destroy":destroy}
w.border_width = 10

b = Button("Hello World")
b.clicked = [hello,w.destroy] #list of commands to execute



Bear in mind that I'm not wholly sure how you'd implement that...
