VB6 To Python

Hey Folks,

I'm working towards understanding python and one of my hopes is to
convert an internal program from VB6 to python. Partialy to learn python
more, and partialy because VB6 is a dead language and partialy because I
am trying to encourage the use of open source solutions.

I am wondering if anyone out there has personal experience converting
VB6 code to Python code.

I have come across some old and defunct projects that created scripts
and such.

Unfortunately this often relies on complete separation of logic from
GUI. Unfortunately the software was inherrited and secondly I am not
that good of a programmer to know how to separate the two all the time.

MY DREAM:

In an ideal world I would like 
* the code and logic to be python
* The GUI to by Gnome 2
* I would like to use the GLADE Gui toolkit (and libs) for the GUI.
* I would like to avoid a code rewrite.

Any experience or insight would be great.

Cheers
