wxPython and PyGame - do they play well together?

Hello All,

I am having a great time with python and pygame, and last night I took
a long look at the wxPython demo. I think that rocks as well.

So now, my question is do wxPython and PyGame work together?

How is the windows event loop managed? How is the display window
managed?

Is it possible to have some sort of master/slave relationship between
the two?

Is it possible that either could be dominant?

Does this sound too weird?

I appreciate any fingers pointing in any directions...

Thank you,
-Erik

I have no personal experience, but based on posts to the Pygame mailing
list, also accessible via Google or as newsgroup thru Gmane (where I read
it), the answer is yes. The subject of Pygame with guis has been discussed
in the past couple of months. I recommend that you read the archives for
the recent past and then join the list or subscribe via gmane or google.
It is a low volume, low noise, list.

After a touch more of exploration... actually from the wxPython demo's
startup tips lead me over to the wxPython Wiki....

Here I found this gem:

http://wiki.wxpython.org./index.cgi/IntegratingPyGame

Awesome. There is in fact some very tricky timing of the import
statement for pygame
