Tkinter and XML-RPC

I'm new to Python (C/C++/Delphi background), and so far I'm impressed with
the language, libraries and community. Anyway, I've just started poking
around with Tkinter and I'm wondering if anyone has any tips or caveats on
incorporating an XML-RPC client and server inside a Tkinter app. I have an
application in mind that would primarily be dealing with short string
messages and the occasional jpeg, so I'm wondering about blocking and
threading issues within the confines of the GUI. I'm just starting to dig
into the detailed docs on Tkinter and the XLM-RPC library, but I thought I
would ask since I'm sure that some folks have been there, done that.

Regards,

Mark...

The main gotcha to worry about is if you will ever need security
for the XML-RPC. It is fairly easy to add password authentication.
It is however very difficult to tunnel it inside SSL unless you
don't care about there being one connection per request (and a
TCP establishment overhead with a SSL establishment as well).

I actually ended up using Paramiko, a Python implementation of
SSH.

Caution, newbie approaching...

I'm a little confused. I was under the impression (perhaps incorrectly) that Tkinter will create GUI widgets that are native to your OS, so I should have an XPish looking application. But when I create buttons (and even the text fields look a bit different), they are not the 'fancy' Windows buttons that are rectangular with rounded edges and...
