Why? Use windows python, wxPython for it - and put it in your path to
use it inside cygwin.

But maybe you _can_ compile it yourself - I didn't try, though.

Don't think that'll work for an extension module.

Probably a daunting task.

Sure it will. You can call whatever program you want from cygwin, as
long as it is in the path. No difference to double-clicking an icon or
something similar.

Yes, and probably not working unless you use MinGW, as you need
windows-headers instead of Posix-style GCC. But I've compiled Python, Qt
and some other libs using MinGW, and cygwin. So I think it should be doable.

Aah, right - I misunderstood you to be saying "use the Windows wxPython
module under Cygwin Python".
But maybe you _can_ compile it yourself - I didn't try, though.

I'm sure the Cygwin world would be grateful if you or someone else were
to establish the correct build procedure.

For Qt? I found it on the Qt free edition site, and followed the
instructionbs. Not much to do there. But make sure you have _plenty_ of
time. It took me _days_ to compile Qt. No idea why MinGW is so darn slow.
