Well, there is also our skinning framework - you specify the GUI in  
XML, but inline python is a major part of it. It was designed to  
allow sending an functional GUI page over jabber or some other  
transport. There are a lot of other interesting tools at the project  
as well: http://www.techgame.net/projects/framework

Get it and check out the demos.
