I use Flex (from adobe) for the client side and turbogears for the
server side and pass xml or json in between.  It gives you a Flash
client which is very Sexy and browser independent and very simple
turbogears code in Python.
Flex is essentially open source, but the IDE is about $295, although
there are multiple ways of getting it for free, including a 30 day eval.
The IDE is an Eclipse plugin, and is well worth the $$$ if you decide to
go that way.
