If you're au fait with pyGTK+, that combined with the ftplib module syou
should be able to build a decent GUI based FTP programme somewhat easily,
although I can guarantee that if you don't know pyGTK+ too well, you'll end
up having several screen-smashing moments, followed by a zen like
realisation or two...
Shouldn't be overly hard, not that I'm familiar with pyGTK+. I would
recommend learning ftplib thoroughly, and perhaps go through a free FTP
client and log what it does, so you can replicate the behaviour in your
programme. Some FTP programmes automatically request directory listings,
some don't, etc. etc.
One of my first projects with a GUI involved using the IMAP email protocol,
good stuff to play with.
