Hi Jeff,

you may want to have a look at PyCrust, PyShell and the like.
I do something like this in my rur-ple app (on sourceforge).

The relevant lines of code are:

import wx.py as py

[inside a wx.Notebook]
win = py.shell.Shell(self.window, -1,
                      introText = tr.INTERPRETER_INTRO_TEXT)
self.window.AddPage(win, tr.PYTHON_INTERPRETER)
