I wrote a ladder diagram editor and code generator that
generates C source code based on function blocks and source
code template files.  The code generation part is written in C
and isn't quite what you're looking for (ladder diagrams
represent boolean expressions involving various function

But, the diagram editor might be useful. You can define
arbitrary blocks and hook them together how ever you want.  It
generates a net-list which is then processed by the code
generator program.

The editor is in STk (a Scheme/Tk combination) and should be
easily translatable into Python.
