This sounds like enthought's enable toolkit, which is still under
development.  Basically, they use the antigrain graphics library to
develop their own GUI widgets, which can then be embedded in a tk
graphic's canvas, at gtk drawing area, a wx panel, etc.  Though enable
doesn't support all of these GUIs currently, I believe, it can in

I've often wished for something like this in developing matplotlib,
because a lot of work goes into supporting multiple GUIs, and it would
be nice to have a core set of widgets that port across GUIs.  Another
approach is anygui, which I've been meaning to look into...
