I modified gui.py so that we can select backends without manually
modifying the code.

It relies on a global variable so I don't like it so much, but couldn't
think of a better way to modify the behavior of a module at import time
(well I could import all backends, and then dynamically decide which one
to use, but that would be wasting memory for nothing)

This commit allow us to set the backend by setting the global variable
'tichy_gui_backend' from the main script :

This one allow us to use command line option in tichy to do so
(e.g. ./tichy --gui-backend=etk)

And this one allow use to use paroli specific backend (even though it is
not in tichy tree yet):

So now we can just add the line :

tichy_gui_backends = ['paroli']

In the main script of paroli to use the correct gui backend.
