Tkinter is included as part of the Python standard library, so you can
build simple GUIs. For quickly presenting dialogs, you could easily
install easygui (http://easygui.sourceforge.net/ ), which builds on
Tkinter, but I don't think it should be part of the standard. I don't
know how either compare to TraitsUI, which I haven't used.
