The one big problem I have with wx + VTK + Python widget is that there
is too much flicker under Linux.  I dont know if this has been fixed
in any recent release but a search on google and the archives of wx
didnt seem to shed any light.  This problem had been mentioned earlier
on this list too.  Would be happy to know the current status on this.
