BOA constructor has always seemed to be broken in one way or another in
every version I've tried. Has it gotten any more mature lately? I would
hesitate "standardizing" on it, esp. as someone might consider the
generation of wxPython code suspicious when compared w/ using
dynamically loaded XML UI description files a'la Glade.

A separate tool for UI generation and general IDE (debugger / editor)
would also seem more maintainable and more in line with Unix philosophy.
