Looking for recommendations

I've yet to write anything worthwhile with Python, but I have been 
working my way through the O'Reilly books and scanning this list.  I am 
considering porting a legal case management system to python and would 
like some input as to the best configuration of modules and interfaces 
for this.  I wish to use PostgreSQL for a database engine and tie into 
OpenOffice as well.  I need to be able to develop a suite of GUI 
programs with a fairly large number of pull down lists, browse screens, 
header/detail screens and the ability to jump between programs and back 
again without loosing state.

This legal system has been around for many years as an Informix 4GL 
system on SCO.  A few years ago it was ported to a now defunct Windows 
based language, an Informix and a PostgreSQL version were produced.  I 
need to be able to produce a suite of programs portable to Linux, 
Windows and Apple if at all possible.

Life on multiple learning curves is stressful, so I would appreciate any 
pointers to similar applications.  I've noticed a few but am concerned 
about commiting to particular optional modules.

I'm currently working on a RedHat 7.2 with three versions of Python. 
The latest being 2.2 that I installed myself.  I have tk 8.3

Thanks in advance...
