Hey Steve and Fernando,
I do know the PyFace design is very much based on JFace (a Java tool
set) like paradigm and uses Traits extensively. I am not sure whether
it would benefit from being layered on top of or being integrated with
these other tools. This has largely been Martin's effort, so I will
leave any specifics to him.
