          As I remember, the OP said that he was going to use Java - the 
GUI toolkit for that is very nice and extremely portable (no cross 
platform niggling little issues 'the window doesn't behave that way on 
linux - well it does on windows!!') - the reason for this - Java GUI 
(Swing ignore AWT for the point of this - AWT has the same problems as 
other native GUI toolkits) is _not_ native.  Although I must agree that 
using cross language and two separate processes seems like more of a 
headache that testing the python code.
