That reminds me of traits, as used e.g. in envisage.  Just a heads-up; I 
always read about the enthought tool suite but only recently started to take 
a serious look at the stuff.  Traits are rather self-contained and 
independent of the higher-level stuff (e.g. envisage, chaco, mayavi,...), so 
maybe that's something you could use in Leo.

BTW: the GUI -> python direction is not the difficult one, but traits help you 
with the other direction, i.e. automatic GUI updating
