need without an obvious answer.
Sorry for the delay in responding, but someone just pointed out this
post to me.

You might want to take a look at Dabo, which is an integrated desktop
application framework for Python (disclosure: I'm one of the authors).
It allows you to visually create UIs that run unmodified on Windows,
Linux and OS X.

You can learn about it at http://dabodev.com
