Along these lines, see my "ClixTur" application at 
It's a point-and-click front end to the standard Python turtle module, 
implementing only a very small subset of the turtle commands. As you 
click, the "real turtle commands" appear in a transcript window. You can 
then save (and maybe edit) and replay the transcript.

Ram, I like a lot of what you've done. Could you talk about your 
decision to embed the standard turtle module (which is implemented in 
Tkinter) in a wxPython application?
