There exists an interface for the SGI video started board,
Modules/svmodule.c. I haven't built a Mac QuickTime interface yet and
am not aware of others who have done so. If you want to have a go,
there's a set of Think C projects on in pub/python as
pythonprojects.sit.hqx.gz that you need to build Python for the Mac
(the sources are the same). If you prefer MPW, I have a set of
Makefiles (gotten from Richard Walker) -- just email me.

So far it is the only cross-platform window system for Python as well
as the only Mac window system. SUIT is also ported to Python and
available for the Mac but nobody seems to have spent the time yet to
link it to Mac Python... (Hint, hint!)
