I would recommend that you take a look at Dabo (http://dabodev.com).
They are in the process of developing exactly the sort of GUI design
tools you are looking for. They're not 100% of the way there yet, as
the project is basically two guys who do this in their free time (and
apparently never sleep!).

On the Documentation page of their site is a list of screencasts where
you can see the GUI design tools in action.
