[FRPythoneers] Python GUI Applications

I believe it costs money to redistribute Qt on Windows but not
Unix/Linux.  I could be wrong, it has been a couple of years since I
looked at using Qt on Windows.

Thanks for the feedback.  I didn't know that Qt designer would accept 
python code in the event handlers.  That would be quite slick.

Qt sure looks better than most of the GUI alternatives - and it is 
fast.  But it does cost money if you distribute the code - do you know 
more about the Trolltech license?
