That is great to see as it can fund the work to fill in the empty prototype.

However, I think it would be better if the design team would create an
official bitmap. For example, should it be a sidebar, or should it be
on top? Things like this can be changed later, but the better the
starting point, the less work and the more likely it will be a
success.

Thanks for the info about PyGObject. I'll add that to the wiki page.
However, I wonder how well it works on Mac and Windows compared to
WxPython.
