Might be quite a good idea. As much as I love Python myself, the WPF GUI 
builder is very nice. Layout done declaratively, xaml really well 
documented, and I can work directly with the xaml text and see what it 
does at the same time. Code completion works, which is quite important 
with those overlong .NET names. The xaml file only contains the 
properties of controls I've set myself, not all the default values. If I 
really want to, I can drag and drop.

And the WPF has a reasonable geometry management, like PyQt, tkinter and 
PyGtk.

But then it comes to writing the code and things start getting tedious. 
So, is there a GUI library for Python that lets me _write_ declarative 
GUI descriptions, separate from the Python code, but easily connected 
with it?
