I think an example using Motif would be a better choice. More people
will look at it and say "I could use that!". Currently a lot of people
are moving to TCL from C because of the Tk package (Motif interface
for those who don't know). If people saw how clean Python is with a
Motif interface, I think some would drop TCL/Tk and go with Python..
Python is a MUCH cleaner language.
