Every toolkit has advantages and disadvantages. The differences are minimal
and depend on 
 your private preferences. wx, gtk provides every year a new major
release... so often the 
 opinions are based on products out of date... 
 The first step in software development is getting requirements.... 
 So why discuss about Toolkits ? Its a implementation detail...
 In the long list i found only the two requirements with consent : 
 * easy installable (=> provide binaries, see py2exe)
 * dynamic data input (from oracle, mysql, pythonscript, .???)
 * A GUI (whats inside ? Which functionality ?)
 I want to add additional basic requirements: 
 * cross platform (Windows, Linux => Qt is not GPL under windows). 
 * license L-GPL. 
 * please do not implement the 100001st 2-D drawing application (good
examples for gtk-drawing applications are incscape and dia). 
 I suggest to write a generic core framework (without gui dependencies,
"batch mode", ...) and everybody 
 can write its own GUI-frontend (with Tk, pygtk, QT, wx, fltk, XUL, AJAX,
.... )
