Hey friends, it struck me, and I want to share before it's gone. 

I am writing this in the spirit of the PyCon US pyside BOF:

Besides the technical issues and the things we discussed to create a real
PySide community, I would like to add a hew goal. 

Make PySide the new standard Gui toolkit for Python!

I see a lot of my core Python friends sharing my impression that PySide
Is a great thing. If we can push it enough, it could even be an officially supported toolkit for python-dev!

Either as a replacement or a supported alternative to Tcl/Tk, it could quite rapidly grow a pretty large community!

This is a very rough and fresh idea, and I would like to know what would be
Stopping us from doing that?

I see a lot of advantages by going this far. We could even move away from PySide's object layout and invent a really pythonic new implementation. 

Comments are welcome -- chris
