[PyKDE] PyQt 3 on Mac?

I too would be interested in this.  I'm wanting to write a small app that is
cross platform (MacOS X/Windows/Linux/UNIX), and has a nice GUI that,
preferably looks native.  I had thought of using Python, also in part due to
needing just a really small database/data storage thing (so would use

I like Python and thought it'd be nice for the app I was working on, plus I
want to write something more substantial with it.  But, I was worried about
what my choices were for GUI, especially cross platform.  I knew about PyQT,
but didn't know how robust it was vs. how much I'd have to fiddle.  I'd
heard PythonCard would be a good route as well, but then saw that it wasn't
there for MacOS.

So, Java with a Swing UI is what I was planning to use.  I happen to love
Java too, and am not interested in a language war.  I like Swing, but am not
happy with the non-native UI on platforms that don't have that (which would
just be Linux/UNIX, and might actually be a reasonable exception for me).

Anyway, I'd love to hear some commentary on PyQT in this regard...

I'm evaluating options about building an application which has to run on
Windows, Mac and Linux/Unix.  Can I use PyQt to build an application
which will run on these platforms?
