I think I have solved the first half of your problem. Please check my
"Call for suggestions" post from yesterday. I implemented a Container
metaclass that can take nested class declarations and generate a
representation with a few important features:

-- it's ordered (in the same order as the original declarations in the
source code)
-- all nested classes are converted to instances

Please check it, and let me know if you're interested. I'm focusing my
work on this part now, I'm purposefully not dealing with the GUI; I
have my own ideas regarding the GUI part, but let us solve one problem
at a time, right?

It seems like we're looking for similar solutions. I'm looking for
more people to start a separate discussion to avoid spamming c.l.py.
Please drop me a note if you're interested.
