GUI on Macintosh

I am using Python 2.3.3 on an Mac OS9 system. I am looking for a build
of Python 2.3.3+ with a built in GUI, since Tk is missing. One day I
hope to upgrade to a new Mac with OSX on it, so a GUI that is available
on OS9 and OSX is preferable. I don't want to write my GUI code from
scratch if I ever manage to upgrade.

Any suggestions?

FYI... the preinstalled python distributed with OS X 10.4 includes the
Tk and wxPython GUI frameworks. I am unaware of how to get either of
these installed on OS 9.

Try as hard as you can to get Tkinter running.

But if that fails, look at what the IDE is using. I believe the waste
module is still distributed with some versions of MacPython for OS X
(none of them recent). I don't think there's a whole lot of
documentation, but if Tkinter won't work, that's your only bet.
