I think it's not important to stress word `gui` in the `modules` name.
It's located in `*gui*/wxpython`, I think it's quite clear that they
are the gui modules. There are other packages with gui modules like
`lmgr` or `mapdisp` which are related to the core component of the
wxGUI. The `modules` should stress that there are non-core gui modules
formed as packages. These packages (eg. `vdigit`) implements given
wxGUI component like vector digitizer or georectifier. That was the
main reason why I suggested `components` or something similar as a
name for this directory (or package).
