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.
