Re Holden's assertion that "the number of open source projects that appear to get stuck somewhere between release 0.1 and release 0.9 is amazingly large": That's easy to explain. They all get the first 90% of the work done, and then fail to realize that there is still another 90% of the work not yet done.
Re wax: I haven't done much GUI work, but I applaud Wax's goals. I hope I'll get^H^H^Hmake the time to contribute to the project this year.
It sure would be great if WAX could become a SourceForge type project, set up for others to contribute to easily.
If WAX were a multi-developer project, and if it approached 1.0 status soemday, no matter how far away, mnaybe it could be folded into the wxPython project officially?

In theory, yes, but that would depend on what the wxPython developers think, of course.
Hans, I think what you basically need is more users, especially those who are willing to bear the brunt of dealing with a dependency on early incomplete versions of your library.
I'm willing to be such an experimental user, and develop one or more simple applications that use wax, but you're going to have to commit to a bit better support for wx versions other than "all the latest stuff works for me".
