Ok then, what are some good higher-level interfaces on top of wx?
If we want to debate whether wx or Qt is better, you have to state
your main considerations: portability (consistent look-and-feel across platforms)/
features/ stability/ speed/ memory compactness/ responsiveness/ ...?
As to coding Qt from C++, fine, but I thought you were talking about using
PyQt from Python, versus wxPython? I'm not really understanding the context 
of your remarks, and whether there's much Python angle to them.
Have you looked at Enthought Chaco btw?
(Maybe Jimmy Retzlaff has some comments?)
