I'm the author of PythonCAD, and I'd _love_ to see a
PyQT or PyKDE front-end be added to the existing PyGTK
interface. The core code of PythonCAD does not depend
on GTK, only the interface stuff does, so it should
be possible to write a PyQT/PyKDE interface and add
it into PythonCAD without affecting any of the current
code. If you do pursue this work, and find that there
are deficiencies in the core PythonCAD code, I'll
be glad to work on fixing those problems.
