I find it much easier to get a simple application written and working
with Tk than with wx. However, once the size/complexity increases
beyond a certain point, I find wx to be less work.

The last time I compared wx vs tk bundled sizes using py2exe (for a
fairly simple application), using tk generated far larger .exe files.
When you use Tk, it pulls in a complete TCL implementation as well as
the Tk libraries (which contain way more library files than wx --
IIRC, there was a _lot_ of localization stuff in the Tk libraries).
