Yes you can do it however although I have an iBook and occasionally 
write python
on it I've never done any Apple specific stuff.

I believe MacPython has links to the libraries for doing true applets 
also you can turn a regular python script into a pseudo applet by 

But thats all I know (and even that is hearsay!) so I suspect you need 
ask again on the MacPython programming list, they will know there what 
do I'm sure.

Sorry, but I suspect its just a tad too specialised a topic for the 
tutor list.
