If you do look into Visual Studio, you can write GUI code in C# using the
Visual Studio designer, then subclass it from Python code.

You can even, with a little modification, design GUIs in C# in Visual Studio
and copy/paste the C# code into a Python file and run with it. You'll need
to convert things like true/false to True/False, null to None, etc...but
with a little effort it works :)
