So you want to use C Python because it's faster than Jython, but you want
the Swing GUI? I think you're making things difficult for yourself.

If Swing is fast enough for your customers, no Java code could be too
slow for them.  :-)

Therefore, why not write the application in Jython, and re-write
speed-critical parts in Java? For most parts of your application, Jython won't
be any slower than Java.

(Personally, I would just write everything in Jython and add 100MHz to the
minimum recommended system requirements to make up for the difference between
Jython and straight Java.)
