AmpChat WxPython support

Stephen Waterbury added a WxPython client to my AmpChat example program. (Mentioned earlier in this post.)

His Mercurial repository is here.

This is still just example code, but now it's an example of multiple things:

  • how to use Twisted AMP
  • how to use Twisted with PyGTK (trivial because gtk2reactor rocks)
  • how to make WxPython's mainloop run in parallel with Twisted's using threads
  • how to write the same simple GUI program in both PyGTK and WxPython
  • how to use Mercurial to contribute to a project without commit rights in the original repo

Anyone want to contribute a PyQT or Tk version?
