When using python+libglade, you read in the xml-format .glade file from
disk.  I seem to recall another package which generated Python source
code instead, but I don't know what advantages doing this has over
reading the xml format.  (For instance, you can let a user replace your
whole UI by replacing the .glade file, so long as they use the proper
widget names)
