Yup! To get the inputs, you'll have to redo them in wxPython. But it's
not a big deal. If you're outputs are print statements than you can
just redirect stdout to a textctrl in wxPython and you won't need to
do too much there. Most of the backend complex stuff won't need any
changing or very little as long as it was written in a refactored /
stand-alone fashion.
