I rewrote in C++ my simple gui with WxWidgets. It is line to line
reimplementation but not strict because some features was broke out. C++
code seems to be longer than in Python but not significantly and it is
much smaller than i expected.

I think Python scripts could be distributed easier than binaries over
different linux distributions because distros provide python. May be i
am wrong. Probably easy distribution on Win and Mac is more important.

I think it would be comfortable for new users to see it while it should
be easy to implement. I think different small and easy features could
improve new users' experience. And here their importance is. So ideas
about small features are welcome too.
