I think that Python is a 3GL. Dabo is a 4GL version of Python, in that
its UI is part of its core API.

Dabo is written by people with visual tools backgrounds, and they are
definitely aiming toward that market. They are looking to the same
niche that Visual Basic, Visual FoxPro, Filemaker, Delphi, and other
similar products are addressing.
