FWIW, Gtk has a TextView widget with functionality similar to the Tk text
widget.  The Gtk folks have no desire to adopt the model the Tk text widget
uses (I asked once upon a time), but you may be able to paper over most
common differences in Python (I suspect a 100% replacement will be
challenging).  I did something along these lines for some contract work a
couple years ago.  My former employer is heavily open source oriented and
can probably be convinced to release that code without much problem.
