I'm using C++; the main reasons behind this are that (a) Python would 
introduce another layer of complexity and possible configtool support 
issues; (b) I know C++ so I'll be more productive, and (c) since the 
original configtool was written in C++, quite a bit of code can be lifted 
with minimal translation. But yes, a lot of people rave about wxPython.

The Linux (wxGTK) version is going well and it's starting to allow 
configuration viewing and editing.

Although I'm a bit biassed towards wxWindows being its original author, I'm 
still pleasantly surprised at how good a job it does ;-) in large part due 
to Robert Roebling's excellent GTK+ port, together with his dialog editor.
