OK. I'll bite. Is there a reason you have to write it twice? Are there
performance or other issues with PythonCard? If you need an extra widget not
supported by PythonCard, is there some reason you cannot develop it with 'raw'
wxPython and add it to PythonCard?
Or is it like the old joke about programmers finding elephants in Africa: "The
COBOL programmers simply took a picture of an elephant and headed East. Each
animal they came to they compared to the picture and if it wasn't an elephant
they tossed it aside. When they came to an ocean they took one step North and
reversed directions. The Assembly language programmers adopted the same
strategy, but did it on their knees insisting it was more efficient that way."
