This can be done, cross-platform, with Qt (though I don't know of an
IDE that supports both Qt visual GUI design and Python development --
but then I'm NOT an IDE person, so the fact that I don't know of one
doesn't mean there aren't several;-)... and with PySide you now have a
pretty liberal OS license on your work (PyQt itself is still "GPL or
pay").  I'd be surprised if by now PyGtk and wxPython weren't at
feature parity with Qt on this subject.
