I have built an application in pyglade and it was good at the time, but
I have found that keeping it running is an issue...  In particular, I
haven't been able to get the old application converted over to use
pygtk 2.x, so I've been carrying around these compatibility libraries
for the last year.

The next GUI I write is going to be in Qt, their GUI builder is
reasonable, and you can directly include python code in the handlers for
actions.  I built a test application with it and it looked pretty good.
qt-designer is the package on Red Hat/KRUD.

I've also tried wxWindows, but the builders I found didn't seem that
good...  I tried the wxDesigner demo, and IIRC I couldn't figure it out.

 With Microsoft you get Windows...  Linux gives you the whole house.
