If you're willing to use GTK then you might want to look into a
GUI-designer-thing called Glade. It allows you to plunk down GUI
objects (windows, buttons, canvases, sliders, etc) and it saves
the layout as an XML file (if you aren't familiar with XML, think
of it as a generalization of HTML). There have been several efforts
to write translators that convert this XML file into Python code
suitable for use with PyGTK:
