Just a idea, maybe a stupid one. wxPython is created by a set of swig
interface files (*.i) and swig has a ocaml backend. So maybe it's not too
hard to port wxPython to ocaml. But I don't nothing about internal stuff,
e.g. how wxPython deals with the gc problem and I never tried to use swig.

If this works, we can look for cheap corba bindings...
