what about wxPython?
What GUI toolkit is Dreampie written in? It doesn't matter much, I
suppose as long as it works with the others, but I'm wondering. Also, if
it's GTK, then native MAc support isn't an option ( :-( ).
Can it run your app in a different process? Given the jython and iton
python support, it looks like yes.

yes -- that's really nice.

not really -- there is a real efficiency to being able whip stuff out at
the command line. It might be nice to have the help show up in a new
window, but don't make me pick up the mouse to get it. typing ? is

yes - this is VERY handy.
I'm looking forward to giving it a real try.
