Have you looked at SUIT. Simple User Interface Toolkit - delevoped here
at the University of Virginia. ( Well, not *right* *HERE* -- at the UVA CS
dept., I mean! Despite being at UVA, I have only recently discovered
this package. )
I have tried the suit unix demo.
I haven't yet managed to build python with the SUIT interface.
( I got distracted by trying to get the dynamic loading for AIX
working before I tackled that. )
I have since notices a note that says that that extension module
is not yet finished. Who was working on it? Can we have a status
If you want to see what SUIT by itself will do ( without Python )
binary demo's are available in uvacs.cs.virginia.edu:/pub/suit/demo
